Thursday, Aug 3 | 7:30 pm
NYO Canada (National Youth Orchestra of Canada) returns to Winnipeg to perform their Canada 150 Signature Project, Edges of Canada. While the concert will feature the performance of works by Strauss and Prokofiev, NYO will also perform The Unsilent Project, a two-part musical piece conceived in collaboration with Signal Theatre, composers Juliet Palmer and Ian Cusson (Métis), and a cast of spoken word artists who explore the themes found in the work of the late slam poet Zaccheus Jackson. This is a free event.
