Only in a sophisticated, artistic city like Ottawa would you find music like this as part of our landscape.
Orchestras in the Park, which runs all weekend at LeBreton Flats Park, allows Ottawans to experience the best in Canadian orchestral music and opera, free of charge. On Friday night, soprano Isabel Bayrakdarian, mezzo-soprano Lauren Segal, tenor Michael Schade and baritone Phillip Addis perform at Opera Under the Stars, while Nikki Yanofsky performs with the National Arts Centre Orchestra Saturday. The National Arts Centre Orchestra presents Gershwin in the Park Sunday. All shows start at 7:30 p.m
