Under the Pines Music Festival

Under the Pines is a classical music festival which takes place in the picturesque Ottawa Valley, between the villages of Bristol and Norway Bay, Quebec.


The festival was founded in 2012 under the general direction of Bristol resident and classically trained musician, Phillip Holmes, and the artistic direction of Ottawa’s internationally acclaimed pianist, Jean Desmarais.


Under the Pines Music Festival provides concert goers with an opportunity to experience classical music while being surrounded by the natural beauty of the Pontiac.


Now in its fourth season, Under the Pines will present a summer concert series featuring works by some of the world’s greatest composers.
