Stone Barn Garden - Leduc
Sunday, August 22 2:00 PM

Today’s 2 PM ESO Outdoors performance in Leduc has been cancelled due to inclement weather. For everyone who RSVP'ed, tickets will be automatically refunded to the original method of payment, so there is no need to take any action at this time.

We will work on planning an ESO concert at the Maclab Centre for the Performing Arts in Leduc sometime in the months ahead. Stay tuned for more details!

For a musical treat, check out a new video release from ESO Musician Laura Veeze (Violin) on the ESO’s YouTube channel here.

Parking at the Stone Barn Garden is limited. We recommend that you take the free shuttle from the Leduc Recreation Centre (LRC) to the Stone Barn Garden if possible. The LRC is located at 4330 Black Gold Drive, Leduc.

The shuttle will start Sunday at 1 PM and the travel time to the venue is approximately 10 minutes. There will be a sandwich board indicating where the shuttle bus will collect passengers at the Leduc Recreation Centre’s East parking lot entrance. Shuttle passengers will be dropped off at the parking lot beside the Stageworks building. The Shuttle Bus will begin returning to the LRC after the concert has finished. Please note that masks are mandatory while riding the shuttle bus.

A fun and engaging hour of music for families including excerpts by Beethoven (Ode to Joy & Eroica Symphony), Mozart (Horn Concerto & Clarinet Quintet), Strauss (Blue Danube Waltz) and Bach (Concerto for Two Violins & Bourrée) among others, as well as a Classical Sing-Along of familiar tunes (you’ll be surprised how much classical music you already know), a mash-up of music from the movies, and some close encounters with the instruments of the orchestra.
