ATB Financial and the Edmonton Symphony Orchestra are thrilled to announce Symphony Under The Sky. Tickets are on sale now for this spectacular finale to Edmonton's summer festival season. Taking place August 31 to September 3, join us in celebration as the annual outdoor festival of orchestral music returns for its 22nd year.
The festival's cahrismatic and well-loved Conductor Robert Bernhardt returns for his twelfth year to lead the ESO in four outdoor concerts that are sure to delight concert-goers. Over the course of four days, audiences can sample the diverse music programming presented by the ESO throughout its concert season under the sky. There is something to satiate the musical appetites of all audiences from classical gems to Hollywood hits, and of course, we'll cap off the weekend with Tchaikovsky's 1812 Overture.
"I'm overjoyed to be back for my twelfth season as conductor of Symphony Under The Sky. The hallmark of this festival has always been to provide a wide variety of excellent and entertaining programs for the entire family, while highlighting many exceptional guest artists, and of course the wonderful ESO! We hope to strike a resounding chord with new audiences and happily welcome back old friends who join us each year," added Bernhardt.
"Symphony Under The Sky is a magical kind of live music that's beyond imagining - you have to see it. It's an event every Edmontonian should experience at least once - no, make that more than once!" says Peggy Garritty, Chief Reputation & Brand Officer at ATB Financial.
