The Capital Advantage: Hands-on Experience

Students benefit from the diverse cultural and intellectual environment that exists within the nation’s capital.  Students at Carleton have access to leading cultural institutions, including the National Arts Centre, the Library and Archives of Canada and the Canadian Museum of Civilization. Moreover, the city’s large émigré communities and diplomatic representatives from around the world provide a stimulating context for studying music in culture.

 Ottawa’s wide range of cultural offerings, from rock concerts at the Canadian Tire Centre and jazz performances at intimate clubs in the Byward Market, to the full season of the National Arts Centre Orchestra, provide the student with ample opportunities to experience the different genres and styles of music in performance.
