In celebration of our 70th anniversary season in 2017-2018, the NSO has created 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 documents 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 features narratives from all seven decades of the NSO’s illustrious history, in the digital exhibit and also a commemorative publication.
