NACO is back on the road with the NAC Orchestra 2022 Tour with stops in Toronto, New York, and Ottawa!

Under the direction of Alexander Shelley, and featuring violin soloists James Ehnes (Gramophone Artist of the Year 2021) and Blake Pouliot, NACO presents the world premiere of Philip Glass’s Symphony No. 13, a work commissioned by the Orchestra on the theme Truth in Our Time, as well as exhilarating and moving pieces by Canadian composer Nicole Lizée, Dmitri Shostakovich, and Erich Korngold. Celebrate with us this exciting orchestral experience!

Philip Glass’s moving Symphony No. 13 is a tribute to Canadian journalist Peter Jennings. Mr. Jennings was not only a highly respected news anchor for ABC News, he was also a trustee of Carnegie Hall during his years in New York City, the founding director of the American chapter of the Friends of the NAC Orchestra, and served as a lifelong champion of Canadian artists generally.
