Venezuela is producing some of the world’s greatest conductors today, and Rafael Payare—making his NAC debut— is one of them. Not to be missed.

Bid on outstanding and unique donated items from across Canada and from around the world. Proceeds benefit the Friends of the NAC Orchestra’s commitment to music education programs for young people. Help us build a fantastic future for music in Canada!
