About Us

New West Symphony and Chorus’ mission is to “Bless people of all ages, leading them to experience love through music, community, and compassionate giving”.


New West Symphony & Chorus was founded in 2010 with a 30 member choir and orchestra, and has quickly gained recognition throughout Calgary.  Now under the musical direction of Henric Ideström, New West has grown to being a vibrant community of close to 100 volunteer members.  Established as a charitable organization, New West believes in using their platform to help organizations that serve the vulnerable, both in our city and around the globe.  This group of dedicated musicians perform an average of 15 concerts per year, presenting a wide variety of choral and orchestral music that ranges from sacred to pop genres.
