The last of our four noon-hour concerts celebrating the NAC Orchestra and its education and outreach programs showcases three more outstanding artists with ties to the Orchestra’s high-level artist training.
In this performance of flute, harp and tenor, the program reflects repertoire performed throughout the NAC Orchestra’s inaugural season. The 1969 program was rich in operatic, Baroque and newly-commissioned Canadian works, demonstrating the centre’s devotion to artistic diversity. The trio will present works by Applebaum, Ravel, Corigliano and Beecroft among others.
Up-and-coming tenor Yanik Gosselin was a 2018 and 2019 participant in the NAC Young Artist Program (YAP). In 2016, Ottawa-born flutist Lindsay Bryden took part in YAP and was also featured on the NAC’s Rising Star recital series in February 2016. Natalie Hoffmann is professor of harp at the University of Ottawa and part of the Ottawa Youth Orchestra Academy faculty, both significant education partners with the NAC Orchestra.
