Canada Day – FREE EVENT
July 1, 2017
We are thrilled to announce that an OrKidstra ensemble will perform at the Canada Day 150 Opening Celebration (on the main stage on Parliament Hill) around noon on July 1 playing and leading the audience of thousands as they sing O Canada and God Save the Queen in the special presence of the Prime Minister of Canada, the Right Honourable Justin Trudeau, the Governor General of Canada, His Excellency the Right Honourable David Johnston and Their Royal Highnesses the Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall! If you are not able to attend, then you can watch it, along with several million others, on national TV (the daytime show will be broadcast live on multiple CBC and ICI Radio-Canada platforms, including CBC News Network and ICI RDI.)
Later on Canada Day, OrKidstra will perform with a hugely popular singer (to be announced!) at It’s time for Canada! – Canada Day Evening Show (show starts at 8:30 PM). The Canada Day Evening Show, with performances from every region of Canada and including the musical fireworks, will be streamed live from Parliament Hill on Facebook (Capital Experience) in its entirety and on the CBC and Radio-Canada websites. CBC and Radio-Canada will each produce a 2-hour nationally broadcast special hosted by Rick Mercer and Anne-Marie Withenshaw respectively. The impressive evening show will feature Canadian artists Cirque du Soleil, Alessia Cara, Marie-Mai, Walk off the Earth, Lisa LeBlanc, Kelly Bado, Dean Brody, Louis-Jean Cormier, Serena Ryder, Kinnie Starr, Gordon Lightfoot and Mike Tompkins.
