Season Finale Success!

on Sun, 06/21/2015 - 12:16
Congratulations to all for a stunning season finale! "Dance to the Music", ARCS' 2014-15 production took the stage at the Arts Commons' Martha Cohen Theatre on June 6 and 7 in three sold-out performances. With repertoire ranging from Big Band to Country, Disco to Hip Hop, the choirs of ARCS sang and danced their way through a fast-paced, entertaining and fun song and dance extravaganza.
 
Up2Something and She's Up2Something combined forces once again to close ARCS' 13th Season, joined by some talented guests and an entourage of behind-the-scenes sound and lighting pros, backstage volunteers and a host of movers and shakers. Nothing of this magnitude comes together without hours of rehearsal, talented leadership, dedicated volunteers and stamina. We had all of these in spades and what a show it was!
 
The ARCS Family of Choirs extends heartfelt thanks to each and every one that played a part in making "Dance to the Music" a success. Our non-auditioned, adult recreational choirs continue to flourish thanks to the passion and dedication of our members, our fans and our supporters. Hats off to you all!
 
Summer is here and we're gearing up for another season of singing and, ahem, dancing. Those wishing to keep their vocal cords in shape over the summer can enjoy "Something Lite Summer" while others opt for the start of our performing choirs in the fall. We're going strong and looking forward to singing with you in 2015-16!
 
Happy Summer Everyone!

Calgary Sings! 2015

on Sun, 04/19/2015 - 10:28
The Sixth Biennial Calgary Sings! was a smashing success! Up2Something and She's Up2Something rocked RockPointe Church with a preview of music to be performed at their season finale, "Dance to the Music". Six guest choirs joined them, along with the incredible, energetic and hilarious Heebee-jeebees, to perform for a sold-out audience on Saturday, April 18th. It was a wildly entertaining evening celebrating our love of singing, culminating in a Mass Choir of almost 400 voices joining for a stirring performance of "Why We Sing".
 
The choirs of ARCS are proud to present this biennial event, proceeds from which support Music Therapy programs at Carewest Continuing Care Centres through the Calgary Health Trust. Over the years, ARCS has contributed thousands of dollars to this worthwhile, life-changing program benefiting those with dementia, Alzheimers and other illnesses.
 
Our thanks to our guest choirs, our family members from SomethingLite and an army of volunteers who helped make Calgary Sings! 2015 a great success. For a complete listing of partipating choirs and links to their websites, please visit our Calgary Sings! page.
 
The ARCS Family of Choirs is now preparing for our season finale, "Dance to the Music!", taking place June 6 and 7 at the Martha Cohen Theatre, Arts Commons. Tickets go on sale for this event on April 23rd. Check back here for more info and to get your tickets!
