The Calgary Philharmonic belongs to all of us. It is primarily funded by our community, run by our community, and serves our community. We inspire, delight, challenge, and unite the community. Our combined efforts have produced one of Canada’s most celebrated live music ensembles and, with your help, we will build on this foundation. To continue to reach more people in Calgary and around the world, our initiatives to support artistic excellence and innovation and increase capacity help secure the long-term health, strength, and resiliency of our Orchestra.
Music has the power to connect us, to move us, and to inspire us.
In a typical Season, the Orchestra welcomes over 100,000 visitors to the concert hall and reaches audiences around the world through its free and accessible digital programming, including its live-stream initiative, an immersive, online concert experience that launched in 2017.
We believe in the value of music education.
We bring music to more than 20,000 Albertans a year through education and community programs. These classical music experiences are designed to stimulate and inspire school students of all ages.
