Come and enjoy some classical music in an intimate friendly cabaret setting over an espresso or a glass of wine.

The Classical Café offers a wonderful chance for emerging professional musicians to perform new works in their repertoire, in a warm intimate setting. The musicians, drawn from the alumnae of the National Academy Orchestra and Brott Music Festival, will perform classical chamber works for small ensembles (duos, trios, quartets).

The National Academy Orchestra of Canada is Canada’s only professional training orchestra, and one of the few of its unique concept in the world. Top music graduates are paired with professional musicians from across North America, who act as mentors. To date, the NAO has graduated over 1,000 students into the profession, in its 21 years of creating world-class musicians. The NAO is the orchestra-in-residence of the Brott Music Festival and performs throughout the Hamilton/Halton regions from May to August each year. For more information visit

Artword Artbar, the latest project of Ronald Weihs and Judith Sandiford of Artword Theatre, is a neighbourhood bar in the James North Art District, that the owners are transforming into an arts hub for live music, art, poetry, theatre and dance. For more information visit
