Summer is a wonderful time to discover classical music. There are many concerts and festivals all over the city, sometimes even outdoors. Here is a list of some of my favourites:
- Canada Day at the NAC (July 1) – Free and very interesting programming!
- Orchestre de la francophonie – Concert in the park (July 20) – I think this is their annual Concert in the park but they haven’t put the info up on the website. So far, the concerts have always been free and in a lovely family-friendly atmosphere.
- National Youth Orchestra (August 2) – Concerts were always free until this year, we were pretty lucky mostly thanks to subsidizing. The orchestra is always of very high calibre for the age of the players.
All concerts in these festival series are excellent:
Have a great summer,
