Join us at Laurier

Becoming a Golden Hawk means more than just cheering on our (really good) varsity teams – it means being a student who cares about your community, who works hard in the classroom, and who takes advantage of all the learning opportunities that can happen outside the classroom, too.

We are pleased to welcome the National Youth Orchestra of Canada (NYO Canada) to campus between June 19 to July 21 for their summer training institute hosted in the Faculty of Music facilities and sponsored by the JP Bickell Foundation.

For more than 50 years, NYO Canada has enjoyed an iconic reputation as Canada’s orchestral finishing school providing the most comprehensive and in-depth training program available to our country’s best young classical musicians. Following their time at Laurier, the orchestra will travel cross-Canada to perform in some of Canada’s most prestigious concert halls.

During their time in Waterloo, NYO Canada will host the Good Foundation NYO Canada Chamber Music Festival with a series of faculty and students concerts in the Maureen Forrester Recital Hall sponsored by Good Foundation Inc.

Many concerts are free or by donation.
