Set in the heart of Broadmoor Lake Park, the patio is a perfect place to take in a concert. It has a relaxing ambience, and if it’s raining, the performance can move inside to the theatre.

You’ll never know what genre of entertainment will take to the stage for you to enjoy!

Performing together since 1987, they appear weekly at diverse venues from the major concert and recital stages of Alberta and beyond to playing for weddings, conventions, and garden parties.
