A Tour of Remembrance, Performance and Education

To commemorate the centenary of the start of the First World War, Canada’s National Arts Centre Orchestra, led by our renowned Music Director Pinchas Zukerman, will embark on a tour of the United Kingdom in October. This tour will explore the themes of remembrance and healing through music in over 50 education and performance events, and showcase the brilliant work of Canadian composers and the NAC Orchestra's musicians, both as performers and as educators. Join the NAC Orchestra on this musical journey through history.

In your classroom and
in your community

The NAC Orchestra is pleased to partner with many communities and organizations in the U.K. to connect with music lovers of all ages, including former servicemen and women, through creation projects, chamber performances, workshops and masterclasses. As part of our pre-concert activities, local choirs will sing songs from WWI and a newly commissioned work by Canadian Abigail Richardson called Song of the Poets.

His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales, Royal PatronWe must never forget that in 1914 Canadians left their homes and families to serve in the First World War. Their sacrifices and the role Canada played in that conflict are being commemorated by Canada’s National Arts Centre Orchestra in this historic Tour, almost 100 years to the day after Canadian soldiers arrived on British soil.” His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales, Royal Patron
