Who is the Calgary Civic Symphony?
Founded in 1975, the Calgary Civic Symphony has been performing live orchestra music in Calgary for over forty years. Begun as a venue for non-professional or retired musicians, the Civic Symphony has grown in both numbers and artistic excellence.
Each year the Civic presents a series of five concerts. These concerts range from classical works to pop, film, and Christmas favourites. Also, our concerts feature collaborations with some of Calgary’s best soloists and musical organizations. As a result, each show is a unique and exceptional experience. You can see what concerts are coming up this year on our Current Season page.

The Civic believes music is for everyone. Accordingly, we don’t think economic status should prevent someone from experiencing the beauty of live music. So, we’ve worked to keep tickets available and prices affordable.
While other live music events can cost $40-80, a ticket to a Civic concert only costs $30 (less for students, seniors, and children). Visit our Current Season page to buy your tickets, or if you share the Civic’s belief in keeping music accessible, consider donating or becoming a sponsor.
