Arts Commons is proud to be part of your cultural community and starting this fall, we are excited to bring you a line-up of fantastic artists and speakers from around the globe and close to home.


From the incredibly moving celebration of Edith Piaf’s life, to the percussive and powerful CHE MALAMBO, our BD&P World Music series shines with talent from around the world. In our TD Jazz season, we ignite the stage with every style of jazz from the iconic piano elegance of Ramsey Lewis to the ethereal voice of Lisa Fischer. National Geographic Live features astronauts and conservationists ready to share their inspiring stories and stunning photography with you. And PCL Blues brings some of the best voices in blues today to our stage. We also have the absolute pleasure of presenting the faithful reproduction of Classic Albums Live, for the first time in Calgary.

If you’ve never subscribed, and you’re looking for a taste of what we do, our Design Your Own (DYO) series option is a new way for you to mix performances from our various series into a custom package while enjoying some of the benefits of subscribing.

We also have the pleasure of unveiling the newly refurbished Jack Singer Concert Hall this season. After 32 years of hosting concerts, performances, and speaker series’, it was time to replace our much-loved Jack Singer seating. This has given us the opportunity to give the Hall a fresh look, and we can’t wait to show you the results.

All this and more! Check out Arts Commons Presents this year – you won’t be disappointed!
