During a concert by the National Youth Orchestra Canada (NYO) at the Maison Symphonique in Montreal, the Minister of Canadian Heritage announced an award of $525,000 for the orchestra’s pan-Canadian signature initiative, Edges of Canada Sesquicentennial Concert Tour. NYO Canada will use the funds to travel to several Norther communities for concerts incorporating collaborations with local Indigenous artists. They will also include mentoring and outreach for aspiring young musicians in each of the communities.
