Bringing the World’s Greatest Artists to Calgary
The Naomi & John Lacey Virtuoso Programme was launched in 2008 with the mandate to bring the world’s greatest artists to perform with the CPO. The generous commitment of Naomi and John Lacey through the Virtuoso Programme has allowed the CPO to feature stunning guest artists including pianists Arnaldo Cohen, Angela Cheng, and Emanuel Ax, violinists Joshua Bell and Yi-Jia Susanne Hou, and cellists Yo-Yo Ma, Laurence Lesser and Sol Gabetta.
