Orchestras • Choirs • Concert Bands

Spring 2024 (March–April)


We invite selected concert band, choral, and orchestral youth programs to experience the Mountain Spring Festival, a 6-day (5-night) celebration of music and culture surrounded by the breath-taking beauty of the Rockies. Throughout the festival, there will be lots of opportunities to explore the diverse landscapes, perform in various locations, and have workshops with guest clinicians. The highlight of the festival is a Gala Performance in Calgary. For this concert we invite local music organizations to collaborate with our visiting musicians providing an opportunity to make new friends and to share in a culminating musical experience.
