The National Youth Orchestra of Canada (NYO Canada) embarks this summer on its 2023 Aurora Tour with stops in Ontario, Québec, and a return to the East Coast after six long years. Join us as 83 of today's brightest young classical musicians take to the stage under the baton of world-renowned conductor, Maestro Sascha Goetzel. NYO Canada will perform works by Canadian composer Kati Agócs, "Shenanigan", and JUNO-award-winning Canadian composer Jocelyn Morlock, "My Name is Amanda Todd". Audiences will also enjoy beloved classical masterpieces, including Mussorgsky/Ravel's "Pictures at an Exhibition" and a performance by the 2023 Michael Measures first prize winner as the featured soloist.
For 63 years, NYO Canada has been regarded as one of the best training orchestras in North America. Consisting of Canada’s finest pre-professional musicians, NYO’s legacy can be heard through the impact of their alums, who comprise a third of professional musicians playing in Canadian orchestras today!
The NYO Canada 2023 Aurora Tour is generously sponsored by Canadian Heritage, the Ontario Arts Council, and the Ontario Arts Foundation. For information about sponsorship opportunities, please call 1-888-532-4470 x232 (Toll-free).

What are Relaxed Performances?
Sometimes referred to as sensory-friendly experiences, Relaxed Performances give the opportunity for those with various sensitivities towards sensory stimuli to experience and enjoy live theatre.
These performances will be designed in a way to be more comfortable for audience members who may experience anxiety or are not comfortable with some aspects of a traditional theatre setting. This can include people on the Autism Spectrum and their families; those with sensory and communicative disorders or learning disabilities; people with Tourette’s syndrome; someone who might need to move often due to chronic pain or to use the facilities; or even parents with toddlers.
