We are especially pleased to have CBC Radio 2 recording six of the seven nights at this year’s Festival. CBC has been at the Concert Hall with their microphones right from the start. Those early recordings and live-to-air broadcasts brought exciting new works along with thunderous applause to audiences across Canada and eventually around the world, with the advancement of digital technology.

They will be broadcasted on In Concert (11:05 am to 3:00 pm) with host Bill Richardson. 


CBC Radio 2 is broadcasting highlights from NMF 1 across Canada on Sunday, February 13. The concert will air on the Signal on Saturday, February 5 from 10:00 pm til midnight with host Laurie Brown.
