CPO ranks among world’s mu­sic elite

Calgary Herald - - OPINION -

Can it get any bet­ter with the arts and mu­sic in our city with the most amaz­ing Cal­gary Phil­har­monic Or­ches­tra. Last week­end’s not-to-be-missed con­cert had Marc-An­dre Hamelin play­ing Ravel on pi­ano with the or­ches­tra, which in­cluded eight cel­los, eight dou­ble basses, at least the same in first and sec­ond vi­olins and vi­o­las and then a huge wind sec­tion. The sec­ond half of the pro­gram was Saint- Saen’s Or­gan Sym­phony with Neil Cock­burn on the awe­some Carthy or­gan.

I have never felt so over­whelmed lis­ten­ing to Saint-Saens. I have lis­tened to it in Syd­ney, Aus­tralia, and Lon­don, Eng­land, and this was truly the most amaz­ing con­cert. This city has a world-class or­ches­tra!! Brenda Wilt, Cal­gary
