On February 15, 16 and 17, excitement was in the air as enthusiastic families made their way to the National Arts Centre to discover the many sound installations and performances offered during the Big Bang Festival! Like a musical fireworks display, this event resonated throughout the building and ignited the curious ears of the crowds gathered to witness the inventive and adventurous artists from here, there and everywhere.
I sincerely hope that the celebration continues, and for a very long time! One thing is certain, we are expecting you for a 3rd edition of BIG BANGOttawa on February 13 and 14, 2021!

Ages 5-12 – We received a box containing a whole show. Anything inside this box can (and does!) become a drum! The show’s beat masters ping-pong between circus and music: buckle up for the wild ride!
Ever been curious about what really goes on backstage? Well here’s your chance. Enjoy three mini concerts as you tour behind the scenes at the NAC. Are you up for the adventure?
This ukulele virtuoso can do just about anything with his instrument. No joke! Wait till he plays a hip-hop beat with chopsticks! You would be right if you thought that James has more than one trick up his sleeve…
