About Friends of NAC Orchestra

Friends of the National Arts Centre Orchestra is a not-for-profit organization who support the NAC Orchestra, music, and music education through our fundraising activities and volunteer efforts.

Founded at the same time as the Orchestra, in 1969, Friends has been connecting music and people ever since. Our goal is to enjoy music while financially supporting young talented musicians and creating opportunities for the younger generation to enjoy orchestral music.
