Hillside Summer Festival 2017
July 14 - 16
The New Canadian Global Music Orchestra was created by The Royal Conservatory of Music, to celebrate the cultural diversity and pluralism of our country as it turns 150. The 12 ensemble members were chosen from more than 100 Canadians hailing from 47 countries. Led by Artistic Director David Buchbinder, the musicians were in residence at The Conservatory for seven months, wrote the music together, participated in educational activities, and created new traditions that reflect what Canada sounds and looks like in 2017.
