Musical Outreach at St. John's Anglican Church

Our Director of Music Barbara Butler has been an arts advocate in the province for the past thirty years and oversees an active music program at St. John’s which includes many concerts and outreach events. St. John’s is the home base for Musique Royale, an early music festival which presents concerts in historic venues throughout the province. Numerous Musique Royale concerts and activities are held year round at St. John’s. Featured performers include Symphony Nova Scotia, guest choirs, soloists, chamber ensembles and instrumental groups performing jazz to world music.

Throughout the year St. John’s opens its doors to many musical organizations in the community. Among them are Boxwood Festival and Workshop, Lunenburg Folk Harbour Festival, Maritime Concert Opera, St. Cecilia Concert Society and South Shore Chorale .

For information on musical activities at St. John’s please email Barbara Butler at or visit
