Canada’s National Arts Centre Orchestra, featuring Music Director Pinchas Zukerman as conductor and violin soloist, will head to Alberta and Saskatchewan for a 13-day concert and education tour from Nov. 7-19, 2005. In addition to six concerts there will be over 90 education events. These include visits by Pinchas Zukerman, Boris Brott, composer Gary Kulesha, and brass, wind and string ensembles. Individual orchestra musicians will visit various venues in the tour cities, as well as in Melville, Humboldt, Red Deer, Lethbridge, Spruce Grove and Stony Plain.
For many young people in Alberta and Saskatchewan, this tour may spark a life-long appreciation of and love for music. Pinchas Zukerman and the NAC Orchestra are passionate about teaching and inspiring young people and through some very special education initiatives such as Music Connexions, the Prince Albert Grand Council Recorder Programme and A commission project with the Suzuki Charter School in Edmonton, the National Arts Centre will be sure to leave a lasting legacy of music.
