Description

In celebration of Canada’s 150th, NYO Canada returns to Halifax for the first time in over a decade as a part of their Edges of Canada tour! Hear 92 of the best young musicians in the country perform live alongside indigenous Canadian artists in this thrilling, inspirational concert experience. Featuring Strauss’ spectacular Death and Transfiguration and The Unsilent Project – a brand-new, youth-oriented response to Truth and Reconciliation.

On the program:

  • Prokofiev’s Classical Symphony
  • Mussorgsky’s Pictures at an Exhibition
  • Palmer & Cusson’s The Unsilent Project
  • Strauss’ Death and Transfiguration


About Edges of Canada:

As our nation celebrates the 150th anniversary of Confederation, NYO Canada has been hand-picked – as one of a select group of just 40 carefully chosen organizations – to design, lead, and execute one of the most prestigious and high-profile signature events in the sesquicentennial.

During July and August 2017, NYO Canada will mount a magnificent, high-visibility pan-Canadian tour – Edges of Canada – which will see specially-commissioned works performed in Canadian cities coast to coast to coast. The 12-city tour will also be the subject of a full-length documentary film, which will be directed by John Bolton of Opus 59 Films and executive produced by Shirley Vercruysse.


About the NYO:

For more than 50 years, NYO Canada (the National Youth Orchestra of Canada) has enjoyed a reputation as Canada’s orchestral finishing school, devoted to the discovery and training of our country’s best young classical musicians.
