In celebration of our 70th anniversary season in 2017-2018, the NSO is creating a dynamic retrospective: On The Down Beat, 70 Years of the Niagara Symphony Orchestra. With seed funding from the Virtual Museum of Canada, the NSO will document its history in a comprehensive digital exhibit on the VMC website. This remarkable initiative provides the NSO with a national platform on which to celebrate its development from a community ensemble founded in 1948 to a fully professional regional orchestra, serving the entire Niagara Region. On The Down Beat will feature narratives from all seven decades of the NSO’s illustrious history, in the digital exhibit and also a commemorative publication.
