Reviewed 4 March 2012

With the combination of a nice cozy setting and top notch musicians, what more can you ask for. I' can't recall being in a place with better acoustics.

Calgary is lucky to have an orchestra of this calibre. Their programme is always interesting and a blend of modern and classic arrangements.

“Always the Best Show in Town! We Have an Awesome CPO”
Reviewed 22 February 2012

I go ALL the time - if its a Pink Floyd Dark Side of the Moon performance, Mozart, live soundtrack performance to a movie like Wizard of Oz -- virtuoso performance from an international performer --- its full of surprises and world renowned ! Located at the Jack Singer Concert Hall - great prices for youths always - but whatever price range its always the best ticket in town!
