While you’re at it, be sure to enter our Soundtown Calgary contest.

Here is this week’s lineup of entertainment that will be bringing audiences and artists together on the Stephen Avenue Summer Stage:

Experience a large range and variety of tone with this musical ensemble consisting of all saxophones. Enjoy the musical styles of swing, blues and jazz as it’s played by seasoned musicians.

Wednesday, June 24th brings to the stage Neil Gunhold’s Shadow Government. They are a poetic, power pop group from Calgary. Some songs contain a blast of jazz and funk. Their influences range from The Who to The Beach Boys, from The Beatles to Prince. Be prepared for an exciting and eclectic live show.

Friday June 26th welcomes ONCUE, a division of the Youth Singers of Calgary. ONCUE have been performing to critical acclaim and to audiences worldwide since 1997. Featuring 10 dynamic voices, ONCUE covers everything from original songs to folk, from classic rock to the latest pop. You’ve heard choirs before, but not like this. Treat yourself to the unique opportunity of hearing Calgary’s premiere vocal group in action.

YOU ARE OFFICIALLY INVITED to all of these shows. We look forward to seeing you there!
