Your Downtown Calgary Weekly Events | Week of October 23, 2017

by Downtown Calgary · 0 comments

Strut in your stuff in your Sunday best, showcase your new Halloween costume, spend the day in a onesie or. . .  do it all! This week will keep you busy with a premiere symphonic ballet, Halloween activities, theatre and a fun run! Read on to start making your plans for the week.


True North captures Canada’s cultural mosaic in majestic, symphonic scope. This ground-breaking collaboration between five composers from across our nation, choreographed by former Alberta Ballet principal dancer Yukichi Hattori, was commissioned by the Orchestra for Canada’s 150th Anniversary. Rounding out the evening is the dazzling 1812 Overture and a new work by Calgary’s own Allan Gordon Bell.

Tickets available online at here.
