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 in, with live tweets carefully curated to facilitate information about the pieces. Tweet Seats are also a great way to network with other arts lovers and share your feedback on the performance. 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.
