Tuning In To Nature, 2.0: A fundraiser to benefit three Island organizations!
October 2nd, 2021
Tuning in to Nature 2.0 is a one of a kind experience that combines some of PEI’s finest music and nature.
After a brief musical offering at Historic St. Mary’s with its world-renowned acoustics, a shuttle will whisk guests down a short country road to an easy, well groomed trail maintained by Island Nature Trust. Along the 45-minute walk, participants will delight in discovering musicians stationed on the trail, playing live music curated to reflect and interact with their natural surroundings. Upon their return to St. Mary’s, guests will be guided to the beautiful IRF pavilion for light refreshments while musicians from the PEI Symphony provide a musical conclusion to the day
Tickets will be sold in groups of 30 to ensure distancing on the trail. The ticket price includes one glass of wine, beer or a non-alcoholic beverage to be redeemed at the IRF Pavilion after the walk, and an ‘Island Experience’ prize pack will be raffled off on the day of the event. Tuning in to Nature 2.0 is a fundraiser with proceeds supporting Island Nature Trust, IRF and the PEI Symphony Orchestra.
Tickets can be purchased in person through our box office at Historic St. Mary’s, over the phone (902-836-3733) or through our online box office: https://www.showpass.com/tuning-in-to-nature/
Island Nature Trust is a membership-based, non-government, Canadian charity dedicated to land conservation in Prince Edward Island since 1979.

Now entering its 25th season in 2021, this summer-long festival attracts thousands of music lovers annually to the acoustically perfect St. Mary’s Church, idyllically set overlooking beautiful Malpeque Bay, to experience the very best in folk, blues, jazz, classical, traditional, contemporary, and world music.
In 1967, the PEI Symphony Orchestra was established to present high quality, live orchestral music to audiences in Prince Edward Island, to provide practical training for young PEI students to learn and perform orchestral music, and to provide gifted Island musicians an opportunity to perform with a large orchestra.
