We bring the music to you!
As part of our commitment to making music accessible, the Calgary Civic Symphony offers school concerts. The performances, for students and their family members, provide a unique opportunity to see and hear a full orchestra – up close!
We perform for schools on Monday nights. The concerts start at 7:30 pm, and last for about an hour depending on the specific musical program presented.
We have a few requirements and suggestions to make the most of your school concert:
- Because we come with a full, 65-member orchestra, the shows require a gymnasium-sized room.
- And since we travel light, the school needs to provide chairs: 65 for the orchestra as many as required for the audience.
- Advertising for the concert to students and their families is the responsibility of the school. In the past, schools have typically used their web page or newsletter.
- We also request a microphone so that all audience members can hear the conductor’s comments.
If you’re looking for a unique way to enhance your students’ learning experience, consider booking a concert with the Calgary Civic Symphony.
