TORONTO, Nov. 15, 2012 /CNW/ - Fidelity Investments Canada ULC
("Fidelity") today announced its official sponsorship of the National
Arts Centre and its 2012-2013 Pops Series. The newly renamed Fidelity
Investments Pops Series is an extraordinary collection of six concerts,
each with its own distinct musical style. The concerts take place at
the National Arts Centre ("NAC") in Ottawa.
"Fidelity is honoured to be an official sponsor of the NAC and its
2012-2013 Pops Series," said Rob Strickland, President, Fidelity
Investments Canada. "Throughout our 25 years in Canada, we have been
committed to supporting the arts in this country, and we are proud to
support the NAC in showcasing emerging and established artists from
across Canada and around the world."
"NAC audiences love Gershwin, and we are delighted to begin the Fidelity
Investments Pops Series with these concerts of gorgeous piano and
orchestra. Pianist Michael Chertock knows Gershwin; he breathes life
into those sumptuous melodies. It will be a night of pure enjoyment for
concert-goers in Ottawa, and we thank Fidelity for their sponsorship,"
said Christopher Deacon, Managing Director of the NAC Orchestra.
The NAC is one of Canada's foremost showcases for the performing arts.
Today, the NAC works with countless artists, both emerging and
established, from across Canada and around the world, and collaborates
with scores of other arts organizations across the country. It is at
the forefront of youth and educational activities, supporting
programmes for young and emerging artists and programmes for young
audiences, and producing resources and study materials for teachers.
The NAC is the only multidisciplinary, bilingual performing arts centre
in North America, and one of the largest in the world.
The 2012-2013 Fidelity Investment Pops Series features a wide range of
musical styles from Leonard Bernstein to George Gershwin and the
Beatles, to Cuban sensations Tiempo Libre, and Canadian superstars, The
Canadian Tenors. The Fidelity Investments Pops Series starts on
November 15, with the Gershwin celebration, "All Gershwin, All Pops!".
It concludes with the June 20-22, 2013 run of "Those Glorious Hollywood
Musicals", which relives the golden age of movie musicals. For more
