About Us

The Edmonton Recital Society offers innovative and inspiring concerts in an intimate setting. Get up close to world-class artists, many with ties to Edmonton, as they perform beloved masterworks and exciting new compositions.

Mission

Our mandate’s six core values:

  • Artistic excellence
  • Promoting artists with connections to Edmonton
  • Providing a venue for young emerging artists
  • Cooperation with other organizations
  • Audience accessibility
  • Community education outreach

Overview

The ERS is a registered, incorporated non-profit music society and registered charity, dedicated to enhancing Edmonton’s artistic and cultural life with world-class concerts in intimate settings.  Most performing artists have connections to Edmonton and many are local up-and-coming stars.

Our goal is to keep these concerts affordable and accessible to anyone and therefore, we rely heavily on our donors and sponsors.

Community outreach is important to ERS. This includes producing special events and supporting student master classes with visiting artists during the year.
