CLASSICFEST HIGHLIGHT

Dakota Perez

To celebrate our 90th anniversary season, we were able to offer an opportunity for solo piano to perform virtually or pre-recorded for adjudication. We captured our performers with top-notch, multi-camera live stream technology to make sure we get the best angles of the performances. Stay tuned for the upcoming performance opportunities and more highlights!

SEPTEMBER 30- NATIONAL DAY
FOR TRUTH AND RECONCILIATION

To understand, grow and reconcile with our Indigenous communities, you can find more information here:

On September 30th, 2021, the Calgary Performing Arts Festival will be off to observe the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation.

 

This Federal statuary Holiday honours the lost children and Survivors of Residential Schools, their families and communities. Following the lead from the City of Calgary, the Festival will continue to mark September 30th as a statutory holiday for all employees going forward. 

On September 30th, we will also wear orange as a visual reminder of our shared past as both Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples in Canada and take this opportunity for education and dialogue on our shared history. 

We wear orange to honour the survivors of residential schools, their families, to those who did not make it home and to remember that Every Child Matters. Meaningful action is more than wearing an orange shirt, but to also engage by listening to Indigenous voices and perspectives this September 30th.
