A concert experience like no other will once again wow attendees later this summer, this time at Fundy National Park in New Brunswick, featuring JUNO-award winning artist Serena Ryder at this year’s Quietest. Concert. Ever.
Now onto its second year, the Quietest. Concert. Ever. is a free concert event located in one of Canada’s beautiful national parks. This year, the Fundy tide will be low as concert attendees stand in unison on the exposed ocean floor, wearing headphones wirelessly connected to the stage performance. The concert experience is described by Parks Canada as a means of “connecting young Canadians with Canada’s natural and cultural heritage, to share their experiences with their peers and inspire them to be leaders in protecting their heritage.”
Tickets are free but can only be obtained through various contests and promotions hosted by Parks Canada and CBC Music. Chances to win tickets are open to CBC Radio One listeners, Twitter and Facebook followers of CBC New Brunswick, Parks Canada, and Fundy National Park.
The first Quietest. Concert. Ever. took place in Banff to an audience of 850 people back in October, 2013 and featured Hedley as the star performer.
The Quietest. Concert. Ever. is presented by CBCMusic.ca and Parks Canada. This year’s concert experience will take place Saturday, August 29.
Serena Ryder is a six-time JUNO-award winner. Her song, “Together We Are One” was the official anthem for this year’s Pan Am/Parapan Games.
