Christmas at the Movies

Presented by: Cox & Palmer


Kick off the Christmas season with the BIGGEST concert of the holiday season – Cox & Palmer proudly presents Christmas at the Movies! From Polar Express to the Grinch, Christmas movie music is an iconic part of the holiday season and we have a concert of Christmas FUN that’s ready for the whole family! Plus join the orchestra for a sing-along of some of your holiday favourites!

We are excited to welcome local school choirs from Vanier Elementary, Brookside Intermediate, and the Holy Heart Choir. We will also be joined by some very special guest soloists Kiersten Noel, Aoife Strand, Steve Power, Renée Marquis-Antle, & David Pomeroy.

Make sure to come before the concert to enjoy our signature drink of the evening and our prelude concert at 6:35pm with Strong Harbour Strings. Don’t forget to warm up your singing voice as well with our fun Christmas playlist linked below!

The NSO’s Christmas at the Movies took place on Friday November 24, 2023.

Strings & Things Festive Collection

The NSO is pleased to partner with Cox & Palmer for a holiday musical gear drive in support of local social program Strong Harbour Strings. The drive will take place at our sold out NSO Christmas Pops concert presented by Cox & Palmer on November 24, 2023.

Strong Harbour Strings has a thriving instrument bank but is currently in need of some musical gear such as the following items:

  • Music Stands
  • Rosin
  • Cello Straps
  • New Bows
  • Cash donations for instrument maintenance including fixing broken instruments, new strings, and more

Individuals wishing to donate to this initiative can drop items off at the NSO office or on the night of the concert, November 24, 2023, on the upper concourse. Cash donations will be accepted in person or online here.

Strong Harbour Strings Program is a mentoring artist program based on the belief that our communities can be strengthened through learning and sharing music. They strive to create equal access to music education and performance for young people residing in under served neighbourhoods through experiential learning and mentoring relationships.
