Calgary Beyond the Crossroads

Striding with purpose towards becoming an international destination for music
June 22, 2016

Contributed by Jeni Piepgrass, Director of Development for the National Music Centre

In political speeches and over cocktails at receptions, there is often talk of Calgary shedding its brand as an “oil and cowboy” town and achieving our “potential”. One can assume this means putting an end to the “yogurt joke” forever. For those of us close to the cultural sector, we are pleased to report that this is no longer some sort of elusive goal out there on the horizon. Our city is so far past that now, it’s hard to remember a time when that joke was clever.

As a choral conductor living and working in Calgary since 2008, I have had the opportunity to collaborate with hundreds of singers and conductors in Calgary. I have also enjoyed watching and listening to colleagues present excellent performances around the city.
