Ottawa’s neighbourhood concert series offers Christmas concerts, jazz, chamber and gospel music at prices within reach.
Ascension Jazz & Chamber Series
“If you are looking for reasonably priced, high-calibre entertainment in a neighbourhood venue with great acoustics and a friendly, relaxed environment, check out this popular concert series at Church of the Ascension.”
—Theresa Wallace, The Mainstreeter
Under the auspices of artistic director Aude Urbancic, and with the support and encouragement of our patrons, the community, and the artists, we are extremely excited to invite everyone to a fourth year of live music in Old Ottawa East.
Our venue is welcoming and intimate; your ticket includes sweets and savouries, coffee or tea, or purchase a glass of wine or craft beer. Tickets, priced within reach, are available at the door, or online at Eventbrite.ca.
From tender balladry to impenitent schmaltz, Love Duets celebrates romance in all its musical guises. There will be gowns! At intermission, indulge, with Prosecco, profiteroles, and pigs-in-blankets.
February 8 at 7:00 p.m.
On February 8, our Jazz & Chamber series turns to thoughts of love. Soprano Emili Losier and tenor Philip Klaassen are joined by pianist Aude Urbancic for an evening of romantic duets drawn from opera and musical theatre.
Your ticket includes Valentine sweets and savouries, coffee, and tea. Or purchase a glass of wine, beer, or perhaps champagne.
Christian Vachon / Fred Lacroix
March 21 at 7:00 p.m.
Both well established in the Ottawa music community, Vachon and Lacroix will perform classical masterworks for the violin and fortepiano (a precursor to the modern piano).
April 25 at 7:00 p.m.
This a cappella vocal ensemble performs popular music and classics.
A perennial favourite and frequent sellout!
