The ISC is looking to the future. We are in the process of rescheduling all ISC concerts postponed due to pandemic-related circumstances. This spring, we will reveal our complete 21-22 season. In the meantime, please enjoy numerous recorded concerts by a wide range of musicians from our livestream series, Winter Solace, in conjunction with Alberta Health Services Patient & Family-Centred Care and the Asylum for Art.

Thank you for your continued support of the arts throughout these extraordinary times.
