Bringing exceptional music closer to you

Engaging concerts that feel like you're among friends

Discover how incredible music is inspired, composed and played

Get closer to the music that inspires you. At High River Gift of Music, we share exquisite, world-class music through concerts, masterclasses, school clinics and outreach performances. Our goal is to give our audience access to incredible music, while providing insight into how it is envisioned, composed and played.

Relax and enjoy engaging concerts by renowned local, national and international vocalists and classical musicians, in a comfortable atmosphere that feels like you’re among friends. 

Shifting our 2022 concert dates

We look forward to renewing your spirit in 2022 with incredible music by pianist Kevin Chen, Viano String Quartet and Indigo Trio. However, our first priority is to keep our community as safe as possible. For this reason, Kevin’s concert will take place in spring rather than late winter. We wish you health and happiness until we meet again.

Dress circle access. No bow tie required.

Part of bringing our audience members closer to classical music involves making everybody feel at home. At a High River Gift of Music concert, the faces are friendly, the conversation is casual, and you can wear what makes you feel comfortable.

(Well, maybe not your pajamas.)

Our relationships are instrumental.

There’s nothing that makes us happier than fostering a love of music! That’s why we work with our artists to present music education and outreach activities including school concerts, band clinics, masterclasses, and community performances.  

Showcasing local talent

Each year, we select promising local artists to feature in our Young Musicians Extraordinaire event. We're proud of the role we play in placing these fine performers in the public eye, and of what they accomplish once they leave our stage.

Visiting High River

It may come as a surprise to discover that High River is just a short drive away. For instance, travelling from south to north Calgary can take longer than driving to High River. Our local community is people-focused, vibrant, and friendly – a fantastic place to spend time. Nestled in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains, High River is a warm and vibrant community offering gorgeous trails and parks, family and fine dining experiences, comfortable accommodations, and one-of-a-kind shops.
