Stone & Sky: Doves at War

Sunday, July 21 @ 6:00 pm – 7:15 pm
Part of the Greek Revival Theatre Festival


The 7th annual Stone & Sky Music & Arts Series is a growing and eclectic series of concerts and other artistic events containing spoken word, live performance, and visual arts. It takes place over 8 weekends in June, July, and August in a disused, fossilized, limestone quarry amphitheatre on Pelee Island.  This gem of a venue boasts remarkable acoustics and flourishes with indigenous and endangered species of plants and animals, some of which are native only to Pelee Island in all of Canada.  Primarily promoting local professional artists, we are proud to present many talented artists and performers.  Artists participate in week long residencies that culminate with the delivery of weekend workshops at no cost to participants.  Stone & Sky is recognized by Heritage Canada and The Ontario Arts Council.  Doors open at 5:30, performances end in time to catch the last ferry to the mainland!
