EPCOR CENTRE’s Jack Singer Concert Hall
Known as ‘The Sinatra of Flamenco’ Diego El Cigala brings his Spanish style to Calgary for one enthralling night of music. Winner of six Latin Grammys as well as numerous other awards and accolades, Cigala captivates audiences with his unique and passionate interpretation of flamenco.
"He radiates a magnetic mix of winking charm and unpredictable vitriol reminiscent of a singer from an entirely different milieu, Frank Sinatra." – The New York Times
Part of the BD&P World Music Series.

Suspended high above the stage is a laminated, 185,000-pound (90-ton) spruce-wood acoustical canopy that can be raised or lowered to tune the hall according to the specific needs of each performer.
Over its 32 year life, Jack Singer Concert Hall has undergone many upgrades to ensure that it remains a state-of-the-art performance hall, including a new million dollar sound system with state-of-the-art hearing assistance in 2004, a complete replacement of all its analog sound boards in 2014, and the future replacement of all of its seats to be completed by fall 2017.
