Curious about what makes an orchestra?
During Alberta Culture Days, the Calgary Civic Symphony hosts Build an Orchestra! An opportunity for the whole family to explore the symphony.
Tour with your map and collect stickers as you visit the different instrument families. While you fill your map, you’ll get to meet the musicians and see the instruments up close. Afterwards, you can hear it all together as the orchestra gathers to play a short concert!
Build an Orchestra! happens every year, so you can make it an annual experience for your family.

What is Alberta Culture Days?
Alberta Culture Days began in 2008 as Alberta Arts Day, a one-day event to recognize the value of Alberta’s arts and cultural communities. Participants held 100 events in 30 communities across the province. A flagship celebration was held at the Southern Alberta Jubilee Auditorium in Calgary.
Since then, it has expanded into a vibrant, three-day, province-wide celebration that has helped inspire the creation of Culture Days – a pan-Canadian movement to raise the awareness, accessibility, participation and engagement of all Canadians in the arts and cultural life of their communities.
