After a two-year pandemic pause, we are RARING to ROCK!

CRESCENDO is an unforgettable night of music, dancing and powerful storytelling. Produced by the John Cameron Changing Lives Foundation, this party will have you singing and grooving along to high-energy classic rock and pop hits.

Our debut event in Calgary featured songs by The Beatles, Queen, Elton John and more – all performed live by dynamic, local talent and had our audience ready for more! In 2022, CRESCENDO will make its triumphant return to the stage with a brand-new show bursting at the seams with all that pent-up rock-‘n’-roll spirit. Proceeds from the evening will support crucial mental health initiatives that are needed now more than ever.

Tickets go on sale on March 28 so mark your calendar.
