CALGARY PHILHARMONIC ORCHESTRA - OPEN REHEARSALS for SENIORS
By ABC Informática (Own work) [Public domain], via Wikimedia Commons Orchestra of the 18th Century
The Calgary Philharmonic Orchestra offers seniors a unique way to experience the orchestra. The CPO has open rehearsals for seniors for select performances. It is a great opportunity to see and hear how an orchestra prepares for a performance.
Tickets are only $15.00 cash. The CPO needs to know how many of us are coming to each rehearsal. To get that information, Facilitator Paul Paetkau sends out an email about ten days before a rehearsal asking those who have signed up for this group to respond with a rousing YES if they plan to attend. Paul often includes comments and musical questions in that email.
Paul has a musical background, having played cello in the Calgary Civic Orchestra and sung in the Festival Chorus.
