Symphony Under the Sky


Photo by Michael Woolley.

Reverberating off the striking Heritage Amphitheatre in Hawrelak Park, you’ll hear the Edmonton Symphony Orchestra in an affable, natural setting during their Symphony Under the Sky concerts from August 27 – 30. The first night will feature classic songs from iconic folk rock songwriters of the 70s, such as Gordon Lightfoot, Joni Mitchell, and Neil Diamond, while the next night moves further back in time to play orchestral favourites from Beethoven, Mozart, and Rachmaninoff. The third night will embrace the sounds of Hollywood, with timeless scores from Disney films and big blockbusters while the final night will feature the conductor’s favourite songs.

And catch a FREE performance from the ESO on September 4 – 5 in Churchill Square for Symphony in the City! The orchestra will provide live accompaniment for highlights from the innovative animation in the Disney classics Fantasia and Fantasia 2000. Arrive early and bring your own seat to this incredibly popular event.

For more information and tickets, visit the ESO’s website.
