On July 1, we Celebrate Canada Day safely, apart but together.

Listen from your front door to hear some special concerts of the Bells performed by Heather Jean Jordan:

1:00p.m. A featured 15 minute Classical Concert will delight you from your doorway
4:00p.m. Open your window and listen to Music Written for the Bells. This 15 minute concert reflects the history of this unique instrument, only 1 of 2 in Canada.
7:00p.m. Step onto your porch, Deck or lawn and bang your pots and pans as we thank our front line workers, then enjoy to a 15 minute concert of Modern Canadiana
Thank you for St. George-in-the-Pines for showcasing this musical instrument unique to the Bow Valley. Click the link for more information about St. George-in-the-Pines, the Bells or Heather Jean Jordan.
We remind everyone to please listen from your front door, porch or Balcony. If you can’t hear the Bells from your home we suggest visiting one of Banffs natural spaces to enjoy the concert while following health protocols. From Central Park to the Top of Tunnel Mountain there are plenty of open spaces to enjoy the music.
