For the first time ever, 35 EUYO musicians and 35 members of the National Youth Orchestra of Canada will join their forces to play together as a single orchestra! The four-city Canadian tour will take place in November of 2019. Viennese conductor Sascha Goetzel will lead the four concerts, which will be presented at Koerner Hall in Toronto (November 12); the Isabel Bader Centre in Kingston (November 13); the Basilique Notre-Dame in Montreal (November 14); and the National Arts Centre in Ottawa (November 17).
The programme will include music by Rossini, Ravel, Saint-Saëns, Stravinsky, and Wagner, with a premiere by Canadian composer John Estascio. In advance of this new collaboration, two musicians from NYO Canada have been early ambassadors for Canada, joining their European colleagues for EUYO’s summer tour in Europe.
