Join members of the National Arts Centre’s Music Education Team for a discussion about the importance of arts education programs and community partnerships, and why such activities are critical in today’s orchestras. How are NAC Orchestra musicians engaged in the NAC’s various education activities? What is the role of a teaching artist? What are some of the elements under consideration when designing family and school programming? Why is it important to invest in the next generation of artists?

- Geneviève Cimon, Senior Director, Learning and Community Engagement
- Natasha Harwood, Manager, Music Alive Program
- Kelly Racicot, Education Officer, Youth Programs and Digital Learning
