World Premiere

It is with regret that Miloš has had to cancel his remaining concerts for the rest of the season on his doctor’s advice due to a physical condition that has affected the movement in his arm. The world premiere of the new guitar concerto written for him by esteemed composer Howard Shore will be rescheduled for February 2019 at the National Arts Centre. All the artists involved, including Howard Shore, conductor Alexander Shelley and the National Arts Centre Orchestra, wish Miloš a very steady recovery and a successful return to performing. 


Living legend.  Melodic impressiveness. Raw emotions. 

Son of one of the greatest guitarists that ever lived, Celedonio Romero, legendary Pepe Romero performs the Concierto de Aranjuez by Joaquin Rodrigo with Alexander Shelley and the NAC Orchestra. A special addition to the program is a short new work by Nicole Lizée, inspired by cinematography techniques.

Enjoy in the newly renovated Southam Hall. Better Seats. Better Sound. Better Access.
