“A great evening.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2013

Attended the CPO's night of science fiction music. So well done. One of the most reasonably priced evenings of great entertainment you can find.

“Nordic lights”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2013

We went ot a concert featuring Nordic music. Being Nordic myself, I was moved by the performance. The hall is magnificent and the public most elegant. No red-neck town, Calgary!

We went last for the Messiah. Good place for entertainment, and listening to classical music.
Enjoyed Tchaikovsky, Mozart and Beethoven as well, we will definitely go back.

“A lovely night out”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2013

Rule Britannia! Loved the show and the young guest violinist, Callum Smart, was breathtaking; unbelievably talented and only 16 years old. The conductor, Grant Llewellyn, was quite a character. Thoroughly enjoyed the evening and will be taking in more CPO performances.

We went to the Salute to Vienna Concert in Calgary on New Years Day and thoroughly enjoyed the whole concert. It far exceeded our expectations.
