The ASOS – enriching the Province of Alberta with outstanding musical events, building in everyone, especially new generations, awareness, and passion towards the extraordinary heritage of classical music.
Imagine the energy, passion and determination necessary to create, from nothing, a new symphony orchestra to represent an entire province!
Emilio De Mercato is attempting exactly that! His idea was to initiate an Edmonton-based touring ensemble to bring classical music to both large and small communities. It’s mandate also includes educational programs for schools and people with disabilities. “What we do is for everyone. We’re making sure all Albertans have a chance to appreciate a universal art form that people have sdored or centuries – and will adore for years to come,” Says Emilio.
