Canada’s hottest new music event is Perspective Festival, proudly hosted in its inaugural year by the University of Regina from May 26-28th, 2023. Perspective is also collaborating with Ritornello Chamber Music Festival to present world-renowned French accordion superstar Fanny Vicens in Saskatoon on May 25th, 2023.

Perspective Festival celebrates Western art music with a special focus on the point-of-view of our performing artists. This year’s festival theme is “Baroque: Beyond HIP”. Historically Informed Performance (HIP) is but one lens through which we may view the music of the Baroque era – one perspective. The artists on this year’s roster are interested in HIP, using it as a jumping-off place for their varied performances and presentations.
