Festival Italiano

From October 22 to November 9, the Calgary Philharmonic Orchestra pays tribute to Italy's musical and cultural heritage at Festival Italiano. You can experience the magnificent sounds and beautiful style of an irrepressible nation and people, right here in Calgary.

Leading the CPO through a vibrantly themed celebration of music, inspired by the region's creative forces, is Music Director Roberto Minczuk. Sit back, savor the sweet life - la dolce vita, and enjoy the CPO's Festival Italiano.
