John Estacio Moontides
Copland Appalachian Spring
Vaughan Williams Symphony No 3 

Energy, conviction, breathtaking freshness: the National Youth Orchestra of Canada brings together the finest musicians aged 16 to 28 from across the vast country to form one of the world’s most accomplished youth ensembles.

Throughout its half-century history, NYO Canada has toured the US, China, Europe and Japan to huge acclaim, its performances lauded for their commitment, focus and sheer exuberance.

NYO Canada spans the Atlantic with music from North America and Britain: the radiant tunefulness of Copland’s optimistic Appalachian Spring, capturing the spirit of pioneer America; Vaughan Williams’s achingly beautiful Third Symphony, nostalgic and deeply lyrical; and the first UK performance of a new work titled "Moontides" from celebrated Canadian composer John Estacio.

British conductor Jonathan Darlington, Music Director of Vancouver Opera, directs the concert.
