Music director Rune Bergmann shared a message of hope through a video from his home in Norway.

“Right now we’re all going through a difficult time and it’s hard to be apart, but today we’re looking ahead in a spirit of optimism and hope,” said Bergmann.

“The upcoming season marks a big milestone for the Calgary Philharmonic as it celebrates 65 years in this great city, and this amazing lineup of concerts is the result of two years of planning.”

Highlights from the upcoming season include two concerts of An Evening with Bernadette Peters, and a one-night only benefit concert with world-renowned violinist Joshua Bell.
