Founders & Directors Johannes Debus and Elissa Lee

This year’s festival celebrates all the things that ground us, nourish us, hold us and make us who we are.

We are proud to once again present an incredible array of world-class musicians who will be presenting programmes that are inspired by nature, history, ethnic roots, and explore an array of traditional and folk music from various cultures.
We are looking forward to returning to some familiar venues, but we are excited to have created new venue partnerships to continue to surprise you in bringing exceptional and unique concert experiences in different settings across the County.
This season BIGLAKE presents its first concert in Tyendinaga Territory at historic Christ Church, promoting communication and unity through music to inspire positive change and reconciliation.


We are very pleased to once again host three young artists from Musicus Society, Hong Kong. These bright students are studying in various schools in North America and are at the start of their professional careers. BIGLAKE is proud to support and present these new talents to you in partnership with Musicus Society.
