Canada’s National Arts Centre Orchestra continues its 50th Anniversary European Tour, led by renowned Music Director Alexander Shelley, in Paris.  The orchestra will enjoy a two-day residency at the modern and breathtaking La Seine Musicale.

On Saturday, May 18, the orchestra will play two one-hour concerts.  The beautiful program opens with French-Canadian composer Claude Vivier’s haunting work Lonely Child featuring soprano Erin Wall.  The concert also features Brahms’ optimistic and forthright Second Symphony, once described as “all rippling streams, blue sky, sunshine, and cool green shadows.”
