Summer Concerts (Series) (1980-1981)

Summer Concerts was a CBC series of 10 one-hour concerts by symphony orchestras across Canada. In 1980 the series included guest performances by Canadian and foreign stars, such as Teresa Stratas, Anna Russell, Peter Ustinov, Stephane Grappelli and Yehudi Menuhin, Victor Borge, and James Galway. The Calgary Philharmonic and the Edmonton Symphony performed a joint concert in Jasper National Park, in celebration of Alberta's seventy-fifth anniversary. Other orchestras in the series included the Toronto Symphony and the Winnipeg Symphony.

Only three concerts were telecast in the 1981 season, one from Montreal, with the Montreal Symphony, and two from Vancouver, with the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra.
