On October 8th, we got to capture the full orchestra reuniting for the first time since the beginning of the pandemic. The enthusiasm and excitement was palpable, musicians could not have been happier to return to stage. We were able to witness the incredible resilience our musicians and staff have demonstrated in this video, where the orchestra is seen rehearsing Prokofiev’s Classical Symphony at a slower tempo, adjusting carefully to the new circumstances. The Orchestra will perform its season opening live-streamed concert featuring music by George Walker, Jessie Montgomery, Jacques Hétu, Samuel Barber, Carlos Simon and Jocelyn Morlock on October 31 at 8 p.m.! https://nac-cna.ca/en/event/27450 --- Le 8 octobre dernier, nous avons eu la chance de filmer l'orchestre complet qui se réunissait pour la première fois depuis le début de la pandémie. L'enthousiasme et l'excitation étaient palpables, les musiciens n'auraient pas pu être plus heureux de revenir sur scène. Nous avons pu constater l'incroyable résilience dont nos musiciens et employés ont fait preuve dans cette vidéo, où l'on voit l'orchestre répéter la Symphonie classique de Prokofiev à un rythme plus lent, en s'adaptant soigneusement aux nouvelles circonstances. L'orchestre présentera le 31 octobre à 20 h son concert d'ouverture de saison (virtuel) avec des musiques de George Walker, Jessie Montgomery, Jacques Hétu, Samuel Barber, Carlos Simon et Jocelyn Morlock! https://nac-cna.ca/fr/event/27450
