Why not join us for our annual FREE Play-In/Sing-In! We are so happy to be back and doing this in-person!! Always a fan favourite and wonderful experience for students which involves rehearsing and performing with NSO Musicians with NSO Conductor Marc David live at the D.F. Cook Hall. This year we will be working on a school level beginner/intermediate choral and instrumental arrangement (created for this event) of the popular “Goin Home” set to Dvořák’s Symphony No.9 (mvt. II) Largo from New World Symphony.
