Win tickets to The Cultural Music Medley and celebrate Inter-American arts and culture

You can call it a potpourri of professional performances, a melange of musical mastery, a concert of cultural choruses - what is it? It is a celebration of culture and art through a rainbow of musical genres. The Cultural Music Medley is a mash up evening of music and dance performances by local, regional and national performers in styles as different as country is from jazz and the symphony is from the blues.

On Sunday, March 27, the Jack Singer Concert Hall plays host to the musical celebration sponsored by The Inter American Development Bank and The City of Calgary. The Inter American Development Bank is holding its annual meeting in Calgary and as part of that gathering is supporting the mixed musical arts performance.
Headlining the Event is the Canadian alternative country band Blackie and the Rodeo Kings. Blackie will share the evening's stage with performances by local musicians Tim Williams, Steve Pineo, Rubim de Toledo, Heather Blush, Raulito Tabera, and Mount Royal University’s Calgary Youth Orchestra


“It's thrilling to be a part of the experience created when the talents of our performing and visual artists have opportunities like this to come together," said Beth Gignac, Manager, Arts and Culture at The City of Calgary. 


“Calgary and Canada are fortunate to have the ability and opportunity to take a leadership role in promoting varied cultural offerings and we trust the audience will have a great time celebrating with our community on this wonderful evening!”
