FORT NELSON || Runaway Belles with Emily Sanzaro, Brian Ritchie and Esmond Dorney

Beautiful spaces with incredible acoustics. Be immersed and inspired by modern architecture and music.

Sheltering invites you to experience a synchronicity of sound, music and design. 

We are passionate about beautiful spaces with incredible acoustics and we’re inspired by modern architecture – how it can make our spirit and voices soar.

The music and artists invited to join us in these wonderful spaces are carefully chosen. Each musician is composing a new piece for the space in which they’re performing. We are very excited to share this new music and these incredible spaces with you.

Ticket Price: $55

Time: Stay tuned, more to come!

A season ticket for all 3 shows is $100 ($10 discount).
