Jenny Lind Scholars Karin Osbeck and Matilda Lindholm in concert at beautiful Venturing Hills Farm June 5th 2016.

Festival Pontiac Enchante has been collaborating with the Swedish Embassy in Ottawa to host the winners of the Jenny Lind Scholarship.  The Scholarship is awarded every year by the Royal Swedish Academy of Music in Stockholm to a female singer and a pianist, and is named after the famous Swedish soprano Jenny Lind (nicknamed ‘the Swedish Nightingale’), who toured North America in 1850-51.  The scholars tour both Canada and the USA, and Festival Pontiac Enchante is very proud to present them in the Ottawa region.  At the end of the concert, a reception will be held featuring hors d'oeuvre created by the Swedish Embassy's chef.

This year's scholars are Karin Osbeck, soprano and Matilda Lindholm, piano.
When: Sunday, 5 June, 5-8pm
Where: Venturing Hills Farm - 440 Chemin Crégheur, Luskville, QC
