Calgary Civic Symphony presents: Concert for Humanity

This collaborative, community-driven afternoon will feature John Estacio's powerful work Victims of Us All, haunting selections of Ukrainian repertoire, and outstanding Canadian and Ukrainian artists joining forces in Beethoven's 9th Symphony, a monumental work of hope and unbreakable unity.
