Rush Hour: Beethoven Chill

May 11, 2017, 6:30pm
Jack Singer Concert Hall, Arts Commons (205 8th Ave. SE)
$25 – $35

A gentle focus on countryside living, Beethoven explored scenes from nature for his innovative Sixth Symphony. Vividly painting a picture of sweeping landscapes from a merry bubbling brook to a dramatic symphonic thunderstorm, join the Calgary Phil, kick back, and unwind.

Calgary Phil Presents: The Gryphon Trio

May 12, 2017, 8:00pm
Jack Singer Concert Hall, Arts Commons (205 8th Ave. SE)

Bold and dynamic, two time JUNO Award-winning Gryphon Trio have a reputation for stunning performances and eclectic repertoire. Although the Calgary Phil won’t be joining them onstage, this concert should still be on your must-see list as the trio is set to perform the sublime Archduke Trio.

The Best of Beethoven

May 13, 2017, 8:00pm
Jack Singer Concert Hall, Arts Commons (205 8th Ave. SE)
$20 – $80

A Joyce & Dick Matthews Dedication Concert, hear pianist Roman Rabinovich interpret Beethoven’s expressively poetic Piano Concerto No. 3. Creative and versatile, the genius of Beethoven is also explored as the orchestra highlights his best compositions.

Beethoven Lives Upstairs

May 14, 2017, 3:00pm
Southern Alberta Jubilee Auditorium (1415 14th Ave. NW)
$24 – $35

Life gets a little noisy and a whole lot more interesting when a crabby, eccentric old man named Beethoven moves in upstairs. Young listeners are introduced to the music and history of the great composer in this popular production blending symphonic music and drama. And make sure you come by early, the Instrument Discovery Zoo kicks off at 2:00pm.

Beethoven Week runs May 11 to 14, 2017. Head to for more details.
