The musical evening was an exhilarating experience. The entire musical performance was spectacular. We attended particularly to hear Dr. Thomas Yu perform, but enjoyed every aspect of the evening. Dr. Yu is our periodontist, who is excellent at this profession. We were amazed to see a grand piano as part of the furniture in his reception area. Then we learned... More

My daughter bought tickets for me as a birthday surprise for their Sinatra special performance. The music was fantastic, the crowd was energetic and the whole experience was wonderful. Can't wait to go again!

I just renewed my subscription for the 2015/16 CPO season. This is my forth year subscribing to the Pop Series of concerts and I am never disappointed by the quality and entertainment value for my money. There is a price range that makes it affordable for almost everyone. Purchase an entire series package (1 or all) or single shows and... More

If you are in Calgary during the fall-winter-spring do not miss out checking the season of the Philarmonica. I have heard during the past 3 years really good classical music. The venue where they play has very good acoustics. Do not miss it out! I especially enjoy the 30 minutes before the concert when in the foyer there is an... More

Pops in the Park is a wonderful experience and a very relaxed evening and it includes a BBQ as well as the concert. This concert has expended to 2 evenings and this year the second evening was sold out. I would recommend this concert for all age levels. It is held at Heritage Park.

This Orchestra is reaching out to provide musical experiences for a very wide audience, and should be appreciated for this. One of the outreach projects it does is provide live music for the Heavy Horse Show the first weekend of The Calgary Stampede...absolutely incredible. Exciting and well done!

We have been to numerous concerts with CPO and their front band 'Jeans and Classics'. Jack Singer is a great venue, and the band and orchestra get a real kick out of playing rock classics together. Their Queen and Pink Floyd concerts were really well done.

We really enjoyed the music. The food was ok and we had a very nice and relaxing time with friends. The performance was at the heritage park and the day was beautiful.

I have seen the Philharmonic many times, mostly at the Jack Singer Hall. It never ceases to amaze me of the quality of this group....from Broadway to Latin, Latin to Classical. When you are in Calgary you must check out the Philharmonic.

I went to the Sci-if and Adventure: Music of John Williams and More. I cannot express how blown away I was with the precision and clarity of the musicians in the CPO. The acoustics are amazing in the Jack Singer Concert Hall. I enjoyed the show so much that I am definitely going to be coming back to experience more... More
