À propos du balado

Comment l'Orchestre du Centre national des Arts est-il devenu l'ensemble de calibre mondial que l'on connaît aujourd'hui? Dans cette série de fichiers balados, le communicateur et auteur chevronné Eric Friesen remonte le fil de l'histoire de l'Orchestre du CNA jusqu'à sa création en 1969. Avec la personnalité attachante et l'esprit perspicace qui le caractérisent, il s'entretient avec des maestros, musiciens d'orchestre, artistes invités et administrateurs sur les débuts de l'ensemble, les défis qu'il a dû relever, les tournées qu'il a effectuées partout au Canada et dans divers coins de la planète, et le profil d'individus qu'il fallait pour amener l'Orchestre là où il est aujourd'hui.
