The Calgary Philharmonic Orchestra has been bringing live music to Calgary audiences since 1955 when the Alberta Philharmonic and the Calgary Symphony merged together. Lauded for their expert versatility, they perform a wide range of music for all ages. They offer educational opportunities, and their home is the Jack Singer Hall in the Arts Commons in downtown Calgary.
At various points throughout the year, the Calgary Philharmonic Orchestra presents Symphony Sundays, a symphony experience specially designed for children. But there are other concerts that children may enjoy, especially older kids, and they will be listed here, although this is by no means a comprehensive list. Highlights often include concerts that play orchestral scores to popular movies. We will list specific concerts that might be of interest to families, but you’ll always find more on the website.
At this time, Calgary Phil has reduced capacity at their venues to one-third, with physically distanced seating in groups of 1 to 4 tickets purchased together. For the protection of audience members and staff, masks are required inside the venues and must be worn over the nose, mouth, and chin. You will find more information about the health and safety measures at www.calgaryphil.com.
All concerts are at Jack Singer Concert Hall unless otherwise listed.
