CALGARY PHIL PRESENTS: KREMERATA BALTICA – February 9, 2017

Violin superstar Gidon Kremer redefines “leading edge” with the Kremerata Baltica, Eastern Europe’s most active and pioneering chamber orchestra. With a reputation for riveting performances, this rare appearance in Canada on their 20th Anniversary Tour marks their Calgary debut and promises to be one of the season’s highlights.

ERIC BIBB W/ MICHAEL JEROME BROWN – February 10 & 11, 2017

With a career spanning five decades, 36 albums, countless radio and television shows, and non-stop touring; Eric Bibb’s relentless love of music makes him one of the true blues troubadours of his generation. Bibb’s soul, gospel, and folk-infused voice is accessible, honest, and powerful. His unwaveringly positive demeanour has found him sharing the stage with Taj Mahal, Pops and Mavis Staples, Charlie Musselwhite, Guy Davis, Rory Block, and more.

Both nights Bibb will be joined by Montreal’s Michael Jerome Browne. An award-winning multi-instrumentalist, Browne has been described by the Globe and Mail as “arguably the finest acoustic blues artist in this country.” Their rich stories and spirited guitar interplay come together for an intimate experience at Arts Commons in the Martha Cohen Theatre.

Check the Arts Commons website for more details and ticket information.

SYMPHONIC PINK FLOYD – February 11, 2017

Experience the progressive and psychedelic genius of “Dark Side of the Moon” played in its entirety, plus highlights from “The Wall’ in this symphonic rock evening featuring your Calgary Philharmonic and Jeans ‘n Classics.

Ticket information can be found on Calgary Philharmonic’s website.
