Event description

Description

As part of Orchestras Canada’s National Conference in Calgary, the National Youth Orchestra of Canada and the National Film Board of Canada will be hosting a private screening of 'That Higher Level', a new documentary from filmmaker John Bolton.

The film follows a group of musicians as they experience the NYO 2017 training program and subsequent Edges of Canada tour. NYO celebrated Canada’s 150th anniversary with performances in cities from Nanaimo to Halifax. Embedded with the orchestra throughout, Bolton weaves together footage that captures the essence of the training institute and eventually, the journey and performances on tour.

Produced by the National Film Board of Canada, 'That Higher Level' provides an insider’s view of the hard work and achievement of some of the most talented young musicians in the country. Under the pressure of their own expectations, they are emotionally, mentally and physically tested by the challenge of performing some of the greatest classical music ever written.

The screening will take place at the Globe Cinema at 7:15 pm on Thursday, May 31 (doors at 7pm). Entry is free – please register to guarantee your space. We would love to see you there!
