TRURO – Music Nova Scotia is receiving great support from the Truro community in preparation for the major festival’s launch in November.
Nova Scotia Music Week
“Support from the local community is paramount to the success of NSMW. Truro was chosen to host the event through a competitive bidding process because Music Nova Scotia believes the community has what it takes to be a great host,” said executive director Scott Long. He added support is coming in many forms from people willing to volunteer hands-on with the festival, as well as from the local host committee, corporate partners and local government.
“Without the support of the local community through partnerships and volunteerism the event would not be possible,” said Long. “We also know that the people in Truro are music lovers and we hope to see the public support the event by coming out to shows.”
Applications are now open for volunteers and showcasing artists for Molson Canadian Nova Scotia Music Week, which is coming to Truro Nov. 6 to 9.
The festival will feature more than 100 artists performing on multiple stages. The event is one of the largest music festivals in the region.
