Creative Choreography with The Edmonton Symphony Orchestra

On Day 27 we will join the Edmonton Symphony Orchestra’s Assistant Conductor and Community Ambassador, Cosette Justo Valdés, as she shares with us some fun ways to move our body with creative choreography, all set to a beautiful soundtrack of music recorded by the Edmonton Symphony Orchestra in 2020.

All you need is a piece of fabric, such as a scarf, pillowcase, or tea towel to dance along. 

The City of St. Albert has worked with content developers to provide creative prompts that align with provincial public health measures, and guidance to protect the health system and the community by slowing the spread of COVID-19.

The Edmonton Symphony Orchestra's artistic mission is to bring the highest quality of live orchestral performance to a broad spectrum of the community. In the last 60-plus years, the Edmonton Symphony Orchestra has taken its place as one of Canada's foremost orchestral ensembles. Its current roster includes 56 musicians from Canada and around the world, performing a wide-ranging repertoire from the great classical masterworks to pops and family concerts. The Edmonton Symphony Orchestra made its Carnegie Hall debut as part of the Spring for Music festival on May 8, 2012.
