The Rush Hour Series at the Calgary Philharmonic has a fun, educational component added to its format. Tweet Seats offers a real-time interactive discussion that audience members can engage with on Twitter, with live tweets carefully curated to facilitate information about the pieces. Rush Hour programmes are one hour in length and give you the option to skip ‘rush hour’ in the city and take in a live performance instead.
