I've attended CPO events time and time again, and they don't disappoint. Programs are well thought through and produced, and the variety of their productions are impressive.

This is one of the best experiences in Calgary. A must see!!! Do not recommend small children, unless it is a children's dedicated performance.

Excellent presentation of Fantasia. It was difficult to choose between watching the orchestra or the films on the big screen. We had seats at the side of the orchestra so felt we were right on stage. Make sure when you order tickets that you click on the discount so you get the children's rates.
