NYO Canada

*Tickets required and available in person at the National Arts Centre box office (1 Elgin St.).

For more than 50 years, the National Youth Orchestra of Canada (NYO 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.

This summer, as part of Canada’s 150th anniversary celebrations, the NYO kicks off its Edges of Canada pan-Canadian tour, performing works created with some of this country’s most high-profile Indigenous artists in a youth-oriented response to Truth and Reconciliation. For Canada Scene, the NYO premiers The Unsilent Project, a two-part musical piece conceived in collaboration with Michael Greyeyes and Signal Theatre, composers Julie Palmer and Ian Cusson (Métis), and a cast of spoken-word artists who explore the themes found in the work of the late slam poet Zaccheus Jackson.

Co-presented by the NAC Orchestra and the NAC’s Canada Scene in collaboration with Ottawa Chamberfest.
