Okay, so who was in charge of the weather?!


The organizers of Beethoven in the Badlands had all their bases covered, they just couldn’t get Mother Nature onside, as rain called off the event for the first time.

The cancellation of the event on Saturday, June 7, at the Passion Play Site, was not without careful consideration.

The plug was pulled at about 1:30 p.m., after consultation with the president of the Calgary Philharmonic Orchestra (CPO) and a meteorologist who was onsite to monitor the weather.

“It wasn’t just the rain,” said event chair and Rotarian Jay Garbutt. “If it was just a comfort thing, the show would have gone on.”

“We were hopeful right up to the end.”
