altAnswering a growing need for a proper performance space in the region, the Calgary Centre for Performing Arts (CCPA) was established as a charitable organization in the 1970s. The venue, anchored by the historic Burns Building and Public Building, officially opened in 1985 to much fanfare.

Now called the Epcor Centre's 'Jack Singer Concert Hall', the theater hosts a variety of productions and performers, such as the Calgary Philharmonic Orchestra, Alberta Theatre Project, K.D. Lang, and Celtic Thunder.
