Performing in Our Community

The North Shore Celtic Ensemble performs at local festivals and events and also produces signature concerts for you to enjoy! Each year, we also give back to our community through our Community Concert Series. This series of donated performances has special emphasis on inter-generational programming that builds and strengthens connections with community members of all walks of life.

    The 2023 Vancouver Youth Fiddle Summit will take place on April 21-23 at Performance Works on Granville Island at the heart of downtown Vancouver, culminating with a performance at Performance Works. 

    The Vancouver Youth Fiddle Summit is an opportunity for advancing young fiddle ensembles in Western Canada to meet, build friendships, and make great music together. This year’s other participants are the North Shore Celtic Ensemble (Vancouver), BC Fiddle Orchestra (Victoria), Bow Valley Fiddlers (Calgary) , Coastline (Victoria), Fiddleheads (Whitehorse), Fiddelium (Nanaimo), Coast String Fiddlers (Gibsons) and Amelia Rose’s studio (Whitehorse). 


    Participants will have a chance to take workshops with other ensemble directors to develop a shared repertoire, improve technical aspects of their playing, and explore other aspects of performance and stagecraft. Participants will have opportunities for collaboration through workshops, performance, and public engagement. 

The North Shore Celtic Ensemble has a dual mandate: To inspire youth to do more and go further with music, and to use music to build and strengthen community connections. We are a non-profit society and registered charity.
