HURON COUNTY – Celebrate the Season with Huron Waves music program featuring artists and sites from across Huron County is set for simulcast on local cable stations and the internet on Sunday, Dec. 13 with repeated, free, follow-up showings on the Huron Waves Music Festival YouTube channel, according to The Goderich Signal-Star.
“This will be a unique step for Huron Waves and definitely our way of beating the virus that forced cancellations of our programming throughout 2020! The musical arts will prevail in Huron County,” said John Miller, the Festival’s Artistic Director, in a press release that was published in the Signal-Star.
Huron Waves Music Festival’s virtual program comes after its planned premiere season was postponed and then cancelled as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. It has instead created a one-hour program narrated by award-winning actor Graham Greene who will lead the audience through five creative segments, featuring Wingham-born cellist Thomas Beard performing at Hensall’s Iceculture; ballerina Antonella Martinelli, a member of the National Ballet of Canada Corps de Ballet, dancing in the family’s heritage barn in Hensall; The Hussey Family singing from Goderich’s Courthouse Park and joined virtually by the Newfoundland Deaf Choir from St. John’s; Goderich-born soprano Christina Bell and Wingham pianist Andrea Grant performing holiday favourites in a private home near St. Joseph; plus The Sunset Drummers, joined by youth dancers from south-western Ontario First Nations including the Kettle and Stony Point First Nation, drumming and dancing down the sun on Lake Huron’s beach.
