Works by Bashaw, Bouliane, Grisey, Messiaen and Wolf.

MusiMarch is very proud to count amongst its collaborators exceptional performers from the National Arts Centre Orchestra from Ottawa.

Consistent praise has followed this vibrant, classical-sized orchestra throughout its history of touring both nationally and internationally, recording, and commissioning Canadian works. The worldrenowned conductor/violinist/violist Pinchas Zukerman was named Music Director of the Orchestra in March 1998. The National Arts Centre Orchestra was founded in 1969 as the resident orchestra of the newly opened National Arts Centre (NAC) in Ottawa.
