- Hosting over 1700 performances yearly, the EPCOR CENTRE for the Performing Arts is Canada's premier cultural mecca. The centre is a six-level complex occupying a full city block in downtown Calgary. The centre includes four theatres, the Jack Singer Concert Hall, rehearsal halls, theatre workshops, offices and meeting rooms. One of three major Canadian arts centres, EPCOR attracts about 300,000 people a year. The centre contains venues ranging from the Georgian-style Martha Bell Theater to the lounge-like Big Secret Theater, and hosts such illustrious companies as Alberta Theater Projects, Theatre Calgary and the Calgary Philharmonic Orchestra. EPCOR calls itself "Calgary's home of contagious creativity," and with the community and ingenuity it fosters, it more than lives up to the claim. Visit EPCOR's website for performance schedules and showtimes.
