We’re bringing music and art together this summer! We’ve partnered with the Edmonton Symphony Orchestra to present weekly performances at your AGA throughout July and August. Join us every Thursday and every Saturday to enjoy these mini-concerts. Best of all, they are included with your membership or AGA admission so be sure to come early to explore our recently reopened exhibitions and finish your day by enjoying a performance from the ESO. To help us manage capacities and keep everyone safe, pre-booking is required here.
If you would like to support the Edmonton Symphony Orchestra, the musicians will be accepting donations onsite and every little bit helps. Online donations, and donations by cheque, will be eligible for a tax receipt. Thank you so much for your generosity!
