Artist Collective Studio

The Artist Collective Studio is a unique artists’ studio and collaborative workspace.  As they are a cooperative, they are able to do more together.  Self-described as an artist family, a close group of friends, and a support system, they make up one of the strongest beating hearts of the creative community.  They offer one another professional, artistic, and technical consult and they share their knowledge, experience, insights, and opportunities to promote their work as a collective and as individuals. Engaging with one another is an incredible asset to the in-studio processes of conceptualizing, critiquing, and creating - and an advantage once out in the world of exhibitions, networking, promotion, and cultivation of vibrant creative careers.

The Artist Collective Studio began in April 2014.  As their artist family continues to grow and change their focus has stayed the same: create a functional workspace, thrive in our creative pursuits, and connect with our community through art

Crowsnest Pass Symphony Orchestra

The Crowsnest Pass Symphony Orchestra has been together in various formats since 1925 and is one of the most enduring amateur orchestras in Canada.
Members have been comprised of residents of Crowsnest Pass, Lundbreck, Cowley, Pincher Creek, Sparwood and Fernie. 
A founding value is to provide an opportunity for students to participate in a group setting playing music they would not otherwise have had the opportunity to perform. The range of ages of members in the orchestra has spanned from 12 years old to over 80 years old.
The orchestra meets weekly from mid-September to mid-May on Wednesday evenings from 7:00pm to 8:30pm. The orchestra presents a Christmas Concert in early December, usually in conjunction with the Crowsnest Community Choir, and then a spring concert in May. Recently, the orchestra has traveled to Pincher Creek for a spring concert. Additionally, the orchestra participates in the Crowsnest Pass Music Festival in March.
