Love music? Love food? Live in Ottawa?

Then I’ve got something for you!

The National Arts Centre here in Ottawa is launching a fantastic new event this week. It’s called “Casual Fridays” and it’s all about combining incredible music, fabulous food and wine, and unwinding after a long week.

This new series is a new take on a night out at the symphony. Decidedly un-stuffy, this event is all about bringing together music lovers to relax, socialize and try something new.

The evening begins with a social food and drinks hour at 5:45pm. Everyone gets a free drink too (wine or a non-alcoholic beverage)! It’s casual, so you can pop in after work, any time before the show starts at 7, have a nibble and chat with friends or meet new people.

The shows promise to be spectacular too, with the first event happening this Friday, November 1st, featuring the NAC Orchestra with special guest, organist Cameron Carpenter.

Other events are scheduled for March and June of next year.

So, have I got you intrigued? Good! Because I’m giving away two tickets to this Friday’s show. All you need to do is leave a comment on this post telling me why YOU are in need of a night out this Friday, and I’ll draw the winner on Wednesday of this week.

  1. Sounds awesome; great idea for a night out! As a student and music enthusiast, I’d love these tickets for a fab study break:)

  2. I’m in need of this night out so I don’t feel LEFT out! It seems like everyone is going to this event. The reviews from the sneak peek were great!

  3. I would LOVE to win tickets to the NAC for this Friday so I could send my wonderful grandparents!! They celebrated 62 years of marriage in September and this would knock their socks off!  It’s right up their alley and they would be so happy to attend as they love the NAC Orchestra.

  4. I would love to go to the NAC Orchestra this Friday as the perfect ending to a busy week of work and vounteering at the Ottawa International Writer’s Festival. Music would be a lovely way to round out the week after the poets and authors!
