Collegium Musicum
The Early Music Festival’s Collegium Musicum ensemble was formed in 2009 to perform Baroque chamber music for two violins, recorder and continuo on period instruments. The group has since given regular concerts throughout southern New Brunswick. It members are Hok Kwan and Katherine Moller (baroque violins)and Tim Blackmore (harpsichord & recorder).

 

 

 

 

The Carleton Chamber Players, a modern-instrument ensemble varying in size from two to five musicians, was formed in 2016 to perform late 18th century repertoire for various combinations of flute, strings and keyboard. Led by Tim Blackmore (harpsichord, piano & recorder), the ensemble’s other core members are Hok Kwan (violin), and Daniel Britt (violoncello). With the addition of another violin and viola the ensemble functions as a chamber orchestra for the Early Music Festival.

Billy’s Reopens with Fresh New Look

Now with a beautifully remodeled restaurant, bar and patio, the same friendly faces will be bringing you a new menu in style. Featuring a brand new bar (seating 20) and up to 10 types of oysters daily, their always-fresh-daily fish menu and Atlantic charm have received a modern update.

Longtime fans need not worry – Billy’s fish market will still be open Monday through Saturday from 9am – 5pm.

To launch their new look, Billy’s is hosting a Grand Reopening on May 17th. Offering a 6-course meal for $70, the event will debut their new oyster bar, new cocktail menu, and new bar bites menu! Make sure to call ahead or stop by if you plan on attending, as the evening is by reservation only.

Check out the new space below – although the oyster bar hasn’t been installed yet, the restaurant’s renovations will be completed for the Grand Reopening next week!
