A new initiative in the 2019-2020 Season, the NSO now offers educational study guides for teachers based around selections of repertoire from throughout the concert season. These study guides help to engage students in classical music through score study, listening examples, and research activities. All study guides are design to include direct Ontario Arts Curriculum links and are available for free. 

2019-2020 Study Guides 

Masterworks 6: SIMPLE GIFTS - April 25 & 26, 2020
Copland: Appalachian Spring - STUDY GUIDE 
Copland: Appalachian Spring - LISTENING ACTIVITIES 

To supplement your study of any of the works listed above, your class can schedule a visit to hear one of the NSO's Open Rehearsals prior to the concert. This is an excellent opportunity to build on the concepts explored in the Study & Listening Guides, and experience the magic of a live orchestral concert first hand!

Please contact Brody Smith, Education & Outreach Coordinator at 905-687-4993 ext 223 or email Brody Smith for more information or to schedule your NSO visit.
