City Brings Disney to Town, 11,000 Attend

Update: The ATB Symphony In the City returns Sept 2-3, 2016 to Churchill Square!

The Edmonton Symphony Orchestra has stepped up with their free public performances in the last couple years. In 2014, the first symphony in the city took place in Churchill Square and ended in Kinsmen Park playing the 1812 Overture to celebrate the new Light the Bridge project.

The 2015 ATB Symphony In The City in Churchill Square featured music from both the 1940 and 2000 versions of Fantasia. Edmonton Tourism estimated 11,000 people came out to the Labour Day long weekend event last year.

The ATB photo booth run by That Just Happened provided attendees with souvenir photos and live social media posts. In addition to the photo ops and activities, fireworks also closed off the concerts.

See how it all went down in this latest Yegventures musical video.

    If Edmonton wants to bring in more Disney-isms their next move should be to build a monorail a la Disney World. LRT problem solved. Wishful thinking, I know. #yegexpo

    This looked like a spectacular time, and a super turnout. Edmonton never fails to impress me, which is a tale as old as time:) #Yegexpo
