As of November 17, 2017 YYC Calgary International Airport’s Holiday Music Program launched for another winter season to bring local performances to the airport from December 15 to 23. As supporters of Calgary’s growing music culture, YYC has been working to bring some amazing talent to share with our passengers.
While music has become an important part of our holiday program, we want to share music with our guests all year round. Earlier this year, YYC partnered with Honens and the Alberta College of Art and Design (ACAD) for Pianoscapes to bring in a one-of-a-kind piano, which was designed and painted by ACAD artist Brianna Strong.
To celebrate this partnership a small pop up concert was held at International Departures prior to the piano moving to its new home post security at U.S. Departures Concourse E. The concert was performed by Honens piano competition prize Laureate, Luca Buratto. Five pianos were shared across the city in honour of Canada’s 150 and YYC was fortunate to become home to one.
