The National Arts Centre Orchestra from Ottawa will be playing concerts throughout the north this month but the relationship isn’t new.
The orchestra has been working with teachers, students and musicians in Nunavut since 2009.
And the orchestra has also sent fiddlers, accordionists and drum dancers to five communities as far afield as Igloolik.
An upcoming concert will be a fundraiser for a group hoping to build a performing arts centre in Nunavut.
