Another Music @ Quidi Vidi takes place from 2 to 3 p.m. Sunday, May 28 at the Quidi Vidi Village Plantation, 10 Maple View Place.

This free concert, suitable for all ages, features Julia Bryant opening for headlining act Rozalind MacPhail. The opening act youth performers are coordinated through a partnership with the NL Folk Arts Society, while the feature performers are selected from the City's annual Call for Performers.

13 year-old Julia has been involved in music for as long as she can remember. Julia plays piano, guitar, violin and ukulele and enjoys sharing her love of music. From traditional Newfoundland to classical, to pop music, Julia has performed a variety of styles at a variety of venues including the Kiwanis Music Festival and Young Folk at the Hall with Fergus O'Byrne. Julia has had the pleasure of performing at the Newfoundland and Labrador Folk Festival Statoil Talent Show, St. John's Got Talent, NL Kids Expo, The Brigus Blueberry Festival, Cupid's Cuppers Cove Festival and Heart's Content Days. She has also been on stage at O'Rielly's Irish Newfoundland Pub, the Delta Ballroom and the Rocket Bakery. Julia has also performed on a volunteer basis at a number of fundraising events and local seniors homes and plays piano accompaniment for the St. Peter's Church Children's Choir.

A classically trained flutist, Rozalind MacPhail fled the boundaries of classical music to create unique fabrics of sound, blending flute, voice, field recordings and electronics, and has created music for film and live performance as well as releasing several albums of original work. Uniquely placed in the St. John’s music scene, she explores new ways to combine image and sound, in works that speak honestly of place, person and the human experience. HEAD FIRST, MacPhail’s collaborative audio-visual project premiered at the Banff Centre and was nominated for an ECMA and a MusicNL Award. MacPhail collaborated with Canadian film director, Ingrid Veninger, improvising a live score of original music for her award-winning feature film, HE HATED PIGEONS which screened at film festivals worldwide. MacPhail’s newest audio-visual project, FROM THE RIVER TO THE OCEAN premiered at Gros Morne Summer Music and the Cucalorus Film Festival. She is nominated for MusicNL Instrumental Recording of the Year, was named Female Artist of the Year at the 2016 Music NL Awards and was also just named the winner of ECMA Electronic Recording of the Year. MacPhail recently created a musical soundtrack for meditation, SUNSET SUNRISE which was an RPM Challenge pick in The Overcast. She has been invited to perform at the National Flute Convention in Minneapolis this summer.
