After a sold-out 2014 tribute that one audience member called “simply wonderful,” Symphony Nova Scotia once again pays homage to Cape Breton’s Queen of Song. Join our orchestra and long-time Rita collaborators Scott Macmillan, the Men of the Deeps, Lucy MacNeil of the Barra MacNeils, and Rita’s niece Katriona MacNeil for an encore performance of Rita’s most loved music. Highlights include We Rise Again, Flying on Your Own, The Ballad of Springhill, Working Man, Home I’ll Be, and many more.

“The bond between Rita MacNeil and the Men of the Deeps was very rich musically and personally, and I am delighted and honoured to be able to share the enduring legacy of their music.”

Scott Macmillan
