The plane had barely touched ground in Iqaluit before NAC Orchestra musicians and staff darted off to their respective outreach activities. Among today's activities were a fiddle and choir workshop with James Ehnes and Arild Remmereit, a theatre workshop with John Doucet and a string performance at an elder centre.

If there was anyone in Iqaluit who didn't know the orchestra was in town they sure do now!
