Choral music is alive and thriving in Calgary!  Every two years, the Adult Recreational Choir Society (ARCS) invites six local area adult choirs to join Up2Something and She's Up2Something in a celebration of song for the public known as Calgary Sings!
 
The Heebee-jeebees, a local favourite a capella group, will once again emcee the event, taking place on Saturday, April 18, 2015 at 7:30pm at RockPointe Church in Bearspaw.Tickets are $20 each and the concert not only highlights sublime choral talent, it also supports Carewest's Music Therapy Program with net proceeds.  
 
Each choir sings two numbers and the night culminates in a spine-tingling massed choir number conducted by ARCS' Artistic Director, Brian Bowman, the creator of this unique choral event.  
 
Calgary Sings! 2015 will be a night of enjoyment, sharing, and a celebration of choral music in our community. 
 
Participating choirs in 2015, the 6th biennial event, are: Big Rock Singers, Choral Waves, Irish Cultural Society Choir, Rhythm of the Rockies, Savridi Singers, Western Hospitality Singers along with host choirs She's Up2Something and Up2Something.

That Was Really Something!

The ARCS 2015 Talent Show & Silent Auction on February 21st at the Gateway on SAIT's Campus was a tour de force of incredible performances. The members of ARCS took the spotlight for this annual event showcasing their talent to the delight of an enthusiastic audience. 23 acts seized the theme "Dance to the Music" and astounded everyone in attendance with their polished performances, stunning costumes, creativity and staging. The audience got in on the action with competitions for best "Twist" couple and best "Village People" impersonation. The emcees, Lyndia and Shari, did an outstanding job of introducing the acts with humor and sass. Guests bid on items in the Silent Auction and entered to win half the pot in a 50:50 draw.
 
Over the past thirteen years, ARCS has committed itself to awakening, nurturing and sharing the magic of voices in harmony. The ARCS Talent Show is an extension of that mission - and what an experience it is to see the fruits of our labour. Newcomers to our organization joined with more seasoned members on stage, each bringing something truly special and unique. To know that we've provided an opportunity for adults to express their talents, creativity and, frankly, brilliance is incredibly gratifying. To each and every performer who took up the challenge, our most heartfelt and enthusiastic congratulations. You were and are AMAZING!
 
Behind the scenes is another tour de force of dedicated staff and volunteers who made the Talent Show possible.
