Calgary Contemporary Showcase

A Showcase of Canadian Classical Music

A unique music experience in Canada, Contemporary Showcase is devoted to the learning and performance of Canadian classical compositions.
Contemporary Showcase is non-competitive, focused on encouraging our community to engage with contemporary composition styles.
A part of the Alliance for Canadian New Music Projects (ACNMP), the "champion for Canadian music", we strive to connect students to our living musical heritage.
