Raise money for Calgary Philharmonic Orchestra - PhilKids Program
The Calgary Philharmonic Orchestra has been a cornerstone of Calgary’s multi-faceted arts community since 1955 and is one of North America’s finest and most versatile live music ensembles.
Donations from this event go to The Calgary Philharmonic Orchestra PhilKids program. Musicians from the CPO visit an elementary school to teach music lessons, Bucket Band ensemble, and music fundamentals classes to children who otherwise would not have access to such artistic programmes. PhilKids is designed to fuel and support the empowerment of children through the exploration of music. It offers elementary students, ages six to 11, the opportunity to learn directly from musicians of the CPO. Teachers quickly develop a rapport of trust and respect with their students through close work twice a week over the school months.
