On February 24, OrKidstra was honoured to be part of the largest Citizenship Ceremony in Canadian sports history at the Canadian Tire Centre, hosted by the Ottawa Senators, in partnership with Canadian Immigration and Citizenship, Ottawa Tourism, and the Sens Foundation. The Citizenship Ceremony occurred right before the hockey game between the Ottawa Senators and the Calgary Flames. Orchestra members were honored to be invited to play and sing the national anthem for this meaningful event. OrKidstra was proud to lead 188 new Canadians from 40 different countries in the national anthem from the ice and the benches before watching the hockey game.
