In anticipation of the 75th anniversary of VE Day and honouring the deep, abiding friendship between Canada and the Netherlands, the NAC Orchestra offers an evening of music celebrating Dutch creativity, from the contemporary to the Baroque.

As part of the NAC’s focus on the arts and artists of the Netherlands, including an appearance by the celebrated Nederland Dans Theater (NDT), we present work from multidisciplinary composer and artist Michel Van der Aa, whose expansive musical vocabulary has made him a unique and compelling voice among the young composers of Europe today. Dutch cellist Harriet Krijgh possesses talent in abundance, playing with an almost unrivalled incandescence and warmth. Tonight she returns to Southam Hall to perform Van der Aa’s double concerto for violin and cello, alongside violinist Simone Lamsma.

Making her National Arts Centre debut, Australian conductor Jessica Cottis is a rising star in the conducting world and undeniably a talent to watch.

Don’t miss this refreshing and inspirational meeting of musical minds!
