ATB Financial and the Edmonton Symphony Orchestra are bringing the community together in what promises to be the best outdoor family entertainment event of the summer. Symphony in the City is a series of free family concerts, over three evenings, in two fantastic Edmonton venues.

Disney in Concert

Friday August 29 and Saturday August 30, 8 p.m.
FREE PERFORMANCE at Churchill Square
The ESO and a cast of four vocalists perform Disney’s most famous movie scores. Expect shivers when the popular Frozen anthem "Let It Go" fills downtown. The multi-media performance will also incorporate movie clips and storyboard art to keep everyone amused. Don't forget to dress up as your favourite Disney character.


Celtic Colours with The McDades

Sunday August 31, 8 p.m.
Now that the High Level Bridge is fitted with 60,000 LED lights, it's time to make a musical connection. The ESO and Edmonton's favourite celtic-rooted family, The McDades join forces for a performance that will tie in the visual of this dynamically lit Edmonton landmark with some spectacular sounds. The night will finish with a dynamic version of Tchaikovsky's 1812 Overture. ATB Financial President and CEO Dave Mowat is also scheduled to make a special appearance on stage not to be missed.


We hope you'll join us at Symphony in the City. Be sure to stop by our ATB Financial booth for family-friendly fun including face painting, a photo booth and a chance to win a one year family Multi-Play Pass to West Edmonton Mall.
