CANADA’S NATIONAL ARTS CENTRE ORCHESTRA, led by its renowned Music Director Pinchas Zukerman, will tour the United Kingdom in the fall of 2014 to mark the 100th anniversary of the First World War and demonstrate the power of music as a force for healing and remembrance.
The tour will celebrate the strong ties between Canada and the U.K., and commemorate the sacrifices of Canadians during the Great War, an event often portrayed as a pivotal moment in Canadian history when Canada came of age as a nation.
In addition to performances around the U.K. there will be a robust education program with activities linking school-aged children in Canada and the U.K. using music to underline themes of remembrance and reconciliation.
