For more than three years now I have attended various classical presentations of Calgary's CPO. Their concerts are always very entertaining and help me to relax. I invariably feel very "uplifted" after attending a performance. I would recommend their concerts or shows to anyone who either lives in or is just visiting Calgary.

I brought my husband here for date night, what a great way to spend a Friday evening! Last night we heard Rush Hour The Music from 2001: A Space Odyssey, which was just simply amazing. We will be going back for sure. Suitable for all ages, great date night, family or group gathering. Recommended.

There's even a special "tweet" section for those who want to share the experience on Twitter. Don't worry, if you are more traditional in your approach to concerts, the tweeting doesn't... More

Having traveled, I have found my home town band one of the best. The conductors that this city attracts speaks volume of the talent that lives and plays here. I have never been disappointed in any performance, be it a full orchestra or be it some special performance with a guest group, like the Led Zeppelin performance. If only the... More

Calgarians are very fortunate to have such a world-class orchestra. We have been yearly subscribers for years, and have never felt for a minute that we have wasted our money. Bought tickets for our 16 year old grandson to two specials concerts and he and his guest were thrilled. That is saying something when two seniors and two teenagers can... More

A must do in Calgary even if an Orchestra are not really your thing, I think this experience will change your mind. The acoustics are excellent and no worry about getting all decked out. Come the way you feel comfortable.
