Quest for a Podium - Complete!

Oct 16, 2015

With the NSO's move to the FirstOntario Performing Arts Centre only 15 days away, we are ready to unveil Music Director Bradley Thachuk's new podium! 

The NSO commissioned this custom-built podium in late August from artist/craftsman Roderick Hillier of the Shaw Festival Theatre. It features beautiful oak trim around the top of the podium and railing to compliment the gorgeous wood interior of Partridge Hall. It also boasts a back rail for conductor support and safety, felt top to control noise during the performance, and an adjustable music stand. This matching music stand is able to be raised to any desired height, and tilts to 3 positions to support and conducting style. 

We are welcoming contributions from patrons to support the building of this podium, and would like to recognize each donor with a plaque on the side of the podium. To support the podium project, please contact Lauren Hundert at 905-687-4993 x 225.
