Transalta Grandstand Show

Together – A Show 150 Years in the Making celebrates Canada’s milestone birthday with spectacular surprises, grand imagery and the kind of breathtaking performances only possible at the TransAlta Grandstand Show. Hosted by recording artist and icon, Jann Arden,  with unforgettable acts by The Young Canadians of the Calgary Stampede, Alberta Ballet and performers from coast to coast, the 2017 TransAlta Grandstand Show reflects our nation’s past, present and future.

Reimagined TransAlta Grandstand Show

Backed by an all Canadian creative team, the show features the talents and visions of playwright, Dave Kelly; Indigenous film maker, Cowboy Smithx; director, Brian Foley; set designer, Douglas Paraschuk and projection and video designer, Sean Nieuwenhuis. The show brings the spirit of Canada to life through a unique style of grand pageantry, theatrical special effects, an original musical score and inspiring performances by musicians, acrobats and dancers of all ages including the Alberta Ballet, The Young Canadians, Calgary’s adult choir Revv52 and Inuit throat singers, Cailyn DeGrandpre and Samantha Kigutaq.

Representing Canadian Heritage

Together is produced by Dave Pierce, Emmy Award winning producer for Outstanding Music Direction for the 2010 Vancouver Olympics opening and closing ceremonies. 

“The Olympic ceremonies set a benchmark for showcasing Canada. Together will be the biggest, most visually spectacular show yet, an extravaganza not to be missed — made right here at home just for the Calgary Stampede,” says Pierce.

When Pierce envisioned Together, his challenge to the creative team was simple, “Can we create a show that truly represents our nation in a way that surprises and entertains audiences?”

The answer is yes. The show, like our nation, is firmly rooted in Canadian heritage and showcases the people of Canada to the fullest. Come Together with us at the Calgary Stampede TransAlta Grandstand Show. 150 years in the making, there’s only one way to tell Canada’s story: big!
