The Calgary Philharmonic Orchestra (CPO) has been live in Calgary since 1955. Live with the world's leading artists. Live in a wonderful range of genres. Live for an average of five concerts a month. Live in Calgary as one of North America's finest and most versatile orchestras. The CPO has been an integral part of our vibrant community for over fifty years and will continue to celebrate some of the world’s greatest music presented in the CPO’s own innovative style that will excite, entertain and inspire music lovers of all ages. The CPO was formed in 1955 by merging the Alberta Philharmonic and the Calgary Symphony. Performing in Calgary's Grand Theatre to a small but enthusiastic audience at first, the CPO gained wider attention in 1957 with the completion of its first home, the Jubilee Auditorium. As the audience grew and public acclaim heightened, the CPO moved to its permanent home in the EPCOR CENTRE for the Performing Arts’ Jack Singer Concert Hall in 1985.<br /><br />The 2006/2007 Season will be the first complete season under the direction of the CPO’s new Music Director, Maestro Roberto Minczuk. The CPO is thrilled to have Maestro Minczuk conduct seven concerts in their 2006/2007 Season. His incredible artistic, creative talents and vision will be enjoyed by all and will ensure the continued growth and success of the Organization. Maestro Minczuk is also the newly announced Artistic Director of the Orquestra Sinfonica Brasileira in Rio de Janeiro. Until last
