Look into Laurier

The National Youth Orchestra of Canada (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.

Wilfrid Laurier University and NYO Canada have entered into a long-term commitment to hold the NYO Canada?s annual Summer Training Institute at Laurier?s Waterloo campus.

Several concerts from the NYO Canada's 2015 tour will take place at Laurier. Unless otherwise noted, all concerts will take place in the Maureen Forrester Recital Hall. For further information, contact Kathy Gauci at concerts@wlu.ca or 519.884.1970 x4439.
