Arts Commons Jack Singer Concert Hall

Join us at the Calgary debut of CRESCENDO!

You’ll enjoy classic rock tunes performed by the top voices and musicians our province has to offer, including members of our very own Calgary Philharmonic Orchestra. The show is sure to have you on your feet belting it out to everyone’s sing-along favourites! This vibrant stage party has been presented in Edmonton for two years to sold-out crowds – you won’t want to miss this night!

Beyond an evening of musical entertainment, CRESCENDO stirs compassion and hope for children, adolescents and their families facing mental health challenges in our community. Through our shared experience at CRESCENDO, we can build understanding, reduce stigma and fund programs to help those reaching out for support.

Join us for this one-of-a-kind musical event benefitting critical mental health initiatives. All proceeds will support the Alberta Children’s Hospital Foundation’s “Build Them Up” campaign in support of the new Centre for Child and Adolescent Mental Health being built in Calgary.

For more information and to learn about sponsorship opportunities, please contact Catherine Feenstra, Manager, Community Initiatives & Events at 403-955-8886 or cfeenstra@achf.com.

Named after Mr. Jack Singer ($1.5M contribution from his sons, Alan and Stephen Singer), the concert hall is also the home of the Carthy Organ donated by the Carthy Foundation in the amount of $750,000 in memory of Mrs. Margaret Mannix. 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.
