“The New West Symphony & Chorus was founded in 2010 by Jonathan & Kristin Schorr.  The now 100 member choir and orchestra began with only 30 and is quickly gaining recognition throughout Calgary.  They exist to “bless people of all ages through musical performances that inspire them to join us in supporting excellence in choral music and in meeting the needs of the less fortunate.”  Established as a charitable organization, New West believes in using their platform to help erase poverty by partnering with organizations that serve the less fortunate.  This group of dedicated volunteers will host on average 15 concerts per year displaying choral music from sacred and pop genres.
