Whether you have a weekend of museum and patio hopping planned, or a quiet picnic in your neighbourhood park, stay safe, stay hydrated, support local businesses, and take a deep breath of that July air, friends. We’ve gotten this far together. Let’s keep one another safe.
We’ve come a long way since our Weekend Roundup: social distancing edition was published around this time last year. This weekend, let’s focus on the positives… there’s a lot!
The National Arts Centre Orchestra is back! Granted, it’s via a new avenue—the NACO is set to perform their first livestream of the season this Saturday, October 31, at 8pm. This is a free livestream with a rich, wonderful program for the evening, featuring guest musicians Jonelle Sills and Christ Habib, who appear on CBC’s “Top 30 Classical Musicians Under 30” list this year.
With a daily performance every weekday at noon the NACO Lunch Break playlist is going to hit one hundred videos this week.
