IQALUIT — The National Arts Centre orchestra wrapped up its Canada 150 cross-country tour with a swing across the Arctic that included Alexander Shelley’s first view of the Northern lights.
Alexander is on his first visit to Nunavut and he’s sampling local cuisine. He’s also participating with the educational outreach events that are part of every NACO tour.
Tuesday evening members of the National Arts Centre Orchestra will participate in a fundraising concert for a new and much-needed performing arts centre in Iqaluit. But the connections between the NAC and Iqaluit’s performing arts community goes much deeper than one concert.
The National Arts Center Orchestra is commemorating four Canadian women including Coquitlam cyberbullying victim Amanda Todd.
Life Reflected is an artistic collaboration commissioned by Canada’s National Arts Centre.
