The Early Music Alberta 2019 festival presents Community ensembles on Sunday, May 5, 3 PM at First Presbyterian Church (10025 105 St)

Early Music Alberta is excited to provide a performance platform for these adult amateur musicians and aspiring music students who dedicate their time to playing and interpreting early music.
