As it was announced today, this summer the National Youth Orchestra of Canada will name the Queen’s University in Kingston, Ontario, its 62nd season.
The announcement came after a national call for proposals from places to host NYO Canada for their annual residency from June 19 to July 20, 2022.
The Queen’s University at the Isabella Bader Center for the Performing Arts (“Isabella”) and the DAN Harrison-LeCaine Hall School of Drama and Music took first place.
“Queen’s has been a fantastic partner for more than a decade, and we look forward to returning to the campus that has since added the stunning Isabel Bader Center for the Performing Arts, a center of artistic ingenuity that has continued its mandate even in a global pandemic,” she said. NYO Canada Director Barbara Smith.
It’s been almost two decades since NYO Canada last resided at Queen’s University – long before the opening of the Isabella Bader Center for the Performing Arts. As they stayed in Kingston as part of the Kingston Orchestras Frenergy Tour, Isabel’s Virtuosi Festival, Isabel held a concert with the Canadian National Youth Orchestra and the European Union Youth Orchestra on 13 November 2019.
