Who: The ProArts@Noon Concert Series Presents:
What: The Harry & Martha Cohen Foundation Emerging Artist Concert Series
Where: Cathedral Church (corner of 7 Ave and 1 Street SE)
When: Various Wednesdays May 22 through to October 23, 2019; concert time 12:10pm

The ProArts@Noon Concert Series is pleased to announce a unique series of four concerts featuring Emerging performing artists.
‘Emerging artists’ are often considered to be artists up to 5 – 10 years out of their artistic education, or up to age 30. However, some artists continue to emerge past that point particularly if they do not often have the chance to share their work publicly.

The Harry & Martha Cohen Foundation recently awarded Calgary’s ProArts Society funding to undertake the Emerging Artist Concert Series, which will feature a diverse selection of performing arts genres.
This special series will be part of the ProArts@Noon weekly schedule of Wednesday concerts.

Now in its sixteenth season, the ProArts@Noon Concert Series is a free, noon hour concert series presented by the ProArts Society; who rent the historic Cathedral Church in the heart of Calgary’s Cultural District for their weekly concerts every Wednesday, all year ‘round.
