A Music on Main tradition that is anything but traditional.

We light up the night for the fifth year in a row to celebrate the solstice in style with holiday merriment and luminous music. Join us for a night brimming with warm tidings, minus the mistletoe. Don’t miss it!

Featuring music by Composer in Residence Nicole Lizée, Corey Payette, Julie McIsaac, Alfredo Santa Ana, past Composers in Residence Caroline Shaw and Jocelyn Morlock, and others.

Highlights include the return of favourites such as Nicole Lizée’s Solstice Noir, Alfredo Santa Ana’s A Short Song for the Longest Night of the Year, and Caroline Shaw’s beloved singalong Winter Carol. This year will also feature music from two new Canadian musicals, Cold Isn’t Permanent from Corey Payette and Julie McIsaac’s hit show Les Filles du Roi and Gimikwenden Ina (Do you remember?) from Corey Payette’s powerful Children of God.
