Canada Day 2017: A Symphonic Celebration of Canada and its Music
Start date: 1 March, 2017
End date: 2 July, 2017
This project involves arranging a broad history of popular Canadian songs for symphony orchestra and performing these works at City of Burlington’s Canada Day 2017 celebrations with special guest Canadian Artists. The arrangements will be made by our music director, Claudio Vena.
Nature of the Project Reach
The project involves the arranging of iconic Canadian folk and pop music for orchestra. This music will be performed at Burlington's Canada Day celebrations.
The music written for this event will enrich the Canada experience for all. SOTB will use the music for future celebrations and make it available for other orchestras, making the music a lasting legacy of our Canada 150 celebrations. The success of the event will allow the orchestra to continue to grow it's support in the community.
