Summertime Soirée returns for another celebration of world-class live music with a Stampede twist in Cowboys & Divas!
Join us as country and classical singers, pianists, and strings share powerful stories about love, heartache, and triumph in the face of adversity. With music from Patsy to Puccini, the event lineup includes opera singers Julie Nesrallah and Lucia Cesaroni, multi-award winning French pianist and 1992 Honens Laureate Jean-Efflam Bavouzet, Canadian jazz great Robi Botos, Calgary’s Tarnation String Trio, and a cameo appearance from Canadian country legend Paul Brandt.
And all of this takes place in one of Calgary’s most serene locations—a private residence in the heart of the city, on the bank of the babbling Elbow River. Does it get any better?
