Christmas with New West

Celebrating 10 years of music this season, New West Symphony and Chorus is pleased to present their annual Christmas celebration - Christmas with New West. Join them at the Jack Singer Concert Hall for a festive evening of music and song.

Tickets range in price from $16-27 plus service fees. Don’t miss this popular concert event that has become a tradition for many!

Calgary's New West Symphony and Chorus, under the musical direction of Henric Ideström, is now almost 100 members strong. Founded in February 2010, New West performs an average of fifteen full-length concerts per concert season at various venues in and around Calgary. Last season's highlights include a sold out Christmas performance at the Jack Singer Concert Hall, and another sold out show of "The Ones Who Dream, Songs of the Cinema".

It is New West Symphony and Chorus’ vision to “bless people of all ages, leading them to experience love through music, community, and compassionate giving.” As a registered charity, they support and partner with both local and global organizations who seek to make a difference and support vulnerable people. So far this 2019/2020 season, "New West Gives Back" is partnering with local organizations that give practical, compassionate assistance to homeless youth and women facing the challenges of an unplanned pregnancy.

Christmas with New West has become an annual tradition for many. So invite your family and friends to join you in celebrating the wonders of the season with New West Symphony and Chorus!

Suspended high above the stage is a laminated, 185,000-pound (90-ton) spruce-wood acoustical canopy that can be raised or lowered to tune the hall according to the specific needs of each performer.

Over its 32 year life, Jack Singer Concert Hall has undergone many upgrades to ensure that it remains a state-of-the-art performance hall, including a new million dollar sound system with state-of-the-art hearing assistance in 2004, a complete replacement of all its analog sound boards in 2014, and the future replacement of all of its seats to be completed by fall 2017.
