National Arts Centre Gala
Saturday, October 5, 2019,
Reception at 5:30 pm
Concert at 6:30 pm
Join us for the National Arts Centre’s Golden Gala!
This year’s event will celebrate the NAC’s 50th anniversary as one of the largest multidisciplinary and bilingual arts institutions in the world, and certainly one of North America’s most significant. Under the baton of Music Director Alexander Shelley, Sarah McLachlan will share the stage with the renowned NAC Orchestra, and audiences can expect surprise performances by other exceptional artists in honour of this special occasion.
As the signature fundraising event, the NAC Gala benefits the National Youth and Education Trust by providing much needed resources for the National Arts Centre’s youth and education programming. The funds raised support music education programs all across the country, masterclasses, online activities and youth programming for dance and theatre. The annual NAC Gala has raised almost $14 million over the past 22 years to support the National Youth and Education Trust.
