"We consistently hear stories about young people whose lives have been enriched through exposure to the arts. We believe that music and speech arts performed by peers who excel in this area, has a positive impact on the students observing, the performers themselves and the community at large."

Linda French, Past President
CPAFestival Board

Your support enriches the lives of our performers

Our mission at the Calgary Performing Arts Festival is to enrich our community by cultivating and celebrating amateur performers. 

The dollars help to inspire young people in our community who have the passion to perform in the arts. A strong culture of arts makes a city more vibrant, helps with an exceptional quality of life and shared prosperity for all. The money that we raise during the year will allow us to bring in exemplary adjudicators, provide quality programs, cover venue costs and give talented artists the opportunity to perform at a world-class venue during the final concert.
