About The Concert

Prepare for orchestral awesomeness because your ESO is going boombox and, like, totally rewinding to the 1980s, when MTV reshaped pop culture! A concert as nostalgic as it is fun, featuring hits from icons like Phil Collins, Cher, Rush, Michael Jackson, George Michael, Billy Joel, Blondie, Huey Lewis & the News, Cyndi Lauper, Kool & the Gang, and more, played by the full power of the Edmonton Symphony. Break out your big hair, neon spandex, and acid wash jeans for this rad retro experience.

This concert will include an intermission.

We honour and recognize the rich artistic, cultural, and musical traditions of the Cree, Nakota Sioux, Metis, Dene, Saulteaux, and the many more Indigenous communities that call this land we share, home.
