Holiday Hits with the NAC Orchestra

Good evening Ottawa!

I’m thrilled to be working with your incredible NAC Orchestra for the first time, and visiting your lovely city. We have a mulled wine and figgy pudding filled concert for you, with dashes of South American holiday spice, a soupçon of Hawaiian fun, and other flavours.

May this concert fill you with smiles and cheer, and we wish you all a very happy Holiday Season!
