The Stellas and Symphony on the Bay will be in Burlington for Canada Day Celebrations on Wednesday, July 1.
The Stellas have been selected to headline the Canadian Tire Main Stage on at 3 p.m. Brad and MaryLynne Stella make up the husband-and-wife country duo from the Toronto suburbs, and have toured with Zac Brown Band, Johnny Reid and Terri Clark.
Symphony on the Bay became an orchestra in 1973. It recently made the Burlington Performing Arts Centre its home and will play the celebrations again this year. The community-based symphony will accompany the fireworks presentation at 10 p.m.
New this year, the Burlington Events Office held a Twitter contest for musicians to win a performance spot the Canadian Tire Main Stage. Residents voted on three finalists, with Devin Moody the winner. Moody, from Burlington, Ont., is influenced by 1950s’ music. He’s toured throughout Canada, the United States and Japan and is currently a semi-finalist in CBC’s Searchlight contest.
Other entertainment planned for the annual celebration includes:
- White Pine Dancers
- Burlington Teen Tour Band
