New West Symphony & Chorus is thrilled to be able to present their annual Christmas celebration again this year - Christmas with New West. Join them at the Jack Singer Concert Hall for a festive evening of music and song. This concert will feature a wide variety of music genres including classical, gospel, contemporary and traditional Christmas songs you'll be able to hum along to.
Don't miss this popular concert event that has become a tradition for many! Tickets range in price from $28-$32 plus service fees. Christmas with New West sold out in 2019, so don't wait to purchase your tickets for this year's seasonal celebration of love and joy!
Calgary's New West Symphony & Chorus is directed by Henric Ideström. Founded in February 2010, this community-based choir and orchestra typically performs an average of fifteen full-length concerts per season at various venues in and around Calgary.
New West Symphony & Chorus is excited to be joined by newly-formed New West Student Ensemble, under the direction of David Klob. New West Student Ensemble is a dynamic youth choir and orchestra for students in Grades 7 through 12.
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" has partnered with Gear Up for Winter, a local agency that gives practical, compassionate assistance to homeless youth.
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!
