Calgary’s professional string ensemble Kensington Sinfonia opens its 2019-20 season with a concert featuring works inspired by the world of visual art.

Music and Visual Arts have been interconnected for centuries, whether it be composers working together with visual artists for mutual inspiration, or even the treasured instruments of the past becoming artworks on their own.

In this opening concert of the season, Kensington Sinfonia will explore the power of music to evoke imagery, whether through the abstract work of Calgary composer Arthur Bachmann’s “Glass Clouds” or French composer Jean Francaix’s music inspired by the paintings of Renoir.

The concert will take place at 3:00 PM on Sunday, October 27, 2019, at St. Stephen’s Anglican Church (1121 – 14 Avenue SW, Calgary).

Tickets are $25 (general) / $20 (students/seniors) and are available online through or at the door. Children 12 and under enjoy free admission!
