About the Lethbridge Symphony
The Lethbridge Symphony has been entertaining audiences since 1960 and it remains a vital part of the arts in southern Alberta, drawing audiences from Lethbridge and the surrounding area. Incorporated as a charitable non-profit in 1961, our first 50 years of music were created by volunteers, with a resident professional music director starting in 1978, and the Musaeus string quartet founded in 1982.
Under the leadership of music director Glenn Klassen, the skilled amateur players, outstanding local professionals, and talented students who make up your Symphony collaborate with numerous fellow community arts groups. Many of our area’s leading performers are frequent partners and we have shared the stage with several internationally recognised artists.
We produce a dozen large events annually, including the Symphony Series (with the full orchestra), Symphony Extras (featuring smaller ensembles), plus our ever-popular Kids Choir and Feel the Beat programs, as well as our annual Love Notes fundraiser. Through our specially-designed Vibrations education and outreach programs, we make the wonder and excitement of live classical music accessible to everyone.
As the community’s top presenter of classical music events, we perform for close to 10,000 people each Season.
