Legendary entertainer Diana Ross will headline the 22nd annual NAC fundraising Gala Wednesday, October 3rd.
Diana Ross —whose countless awards and accolades include the Presidential Medal of Freedom— will take to the NAC’s Southam Hall stage for a rare, knockout performance effusing her signature power, poise and panache.
“Diana Ross is beyond compare. Her career and successes have transcended borders and generations and are emblematic of the dedication, perseverance and vision that we aim to support in young artists across Canada through our vast education programs,” said Alexander Shelly, NAC Orchestra Music Director.
Alexander Shelley and the National Arts Centre Orchestra will open the gala performance. Diana Ross will then be accompanied by the orchestra in a highly anticipated 75- minute set. The party continues after the concert with music throughout the NAC’s public spaces. Guests are encouraged to party the night away!
Proceeds from the 22nd annual NAC Gala will support the National Youth and Education Trust which provides youth and education programming across Canada.
