The Stage at St Andrew’s

Halifax, NS

The Stage at St Andrew’s

Halifax, NS

The Stage at St Andrew’s is a performance and event venue as part of St Andrew’s United Church. Think fair trade for the music industry. That’s us. This is about the performers and the people who love their stuff. We want to provide music lovers an opportunity to access locally made music and culivate a connection with the artists who provide it. This is not driven by money. This is driven by music. From our perspective, it is about bringing community together. Why not bring Queer Punk and Traditional Gaelic artists on the same stage together? Artists and audiences will open themselves up to new voices. They’ve got their fans and we have the place where they can come together. Our venue is creating community for musicians, and bringing the community to them as well. We’re not trying to take over the local neighbourhood music venues, they are already doing fabulous things. We want to join them!
