This Canada Day, the CBC Virtual Orchestra gives its first performance, with JUNO award-winning Canadian composer Vivian Fung.
The piece, Prayer, is commissioned by CBC Music and led by conductor Yannick Nezet-Seguin. Nezet-Seguin is a music director of the Metropolitan Opera in New York, the Philadelphia Orchestra and Orchestre Metropolitain in Montreal.
CBC Music, in creative collaboration with the Toronto Symphony Orchestra, has brought together 36 of Canada’s finest classical musicians from 28 different orchestras from every province in Canada. Together, they’re presenting a unique online performance recorded in isolation.
