Calgary music retailer Long and McQuade has donated time and resources to bring instruments for the public to hold and play in the lobby. The experience of holding an instrument, and learning how to make a sound is engaging and authentic. It will give the opportunity for aspiring musicians to learn more about the instruments and give those who appreciate music a higher level of awareness of what the musicians are experiencing when they perform. This is a wonderful interactive hands-on activity for all ages.

Hosted by Matthew Ferguson



Calgary Jazz Orchestra

This 17-26 piece professional jazz orchestra, directed by Johnny Summers, creates engaging musical experiences as they take the listeners on a journey in sound from traditional jazz, modern, pop, funk, soul and New Orleans music, to name a few. Join us for a unique music experience filled with expression, character, virtuosic playing with soul, and community atmosphere that draws you in and fills you with a range of emotions.
