When ARCS learned of the Con Spirito Award, we knew we had to nominate our Founder and Artistic Director, Brian Bowman, particularly since 2016-17 marks our 15th Anniversary season.  The award recognizes the spirit and dedication of individuals and their commitment to choral music in their local community. We were thrilled to learn he had won!  Choir Alberta noted the following in their notification letter:

“…the Choir Alberta Board was thrilled to receive your nomination last summer and voted unanimously in favour of your receiving the award.

And for good reason!  As was outlined in your letter of nomination, your vision, innovation, and commitment to choral music in Calgary is second to none.  Without a doubt, the lives of hundreds of individuals have been enhanced through their experience singing in one of your choirs.  Not only have your choristers learned the lifelong skill that is singing, but they have also experienced the joy of making music in community.  Thank you for sharing you knowledge and passion so freely with everyone who has the good fortune to sing with you!

Congratulations, Brian, on your outstanding choral work and accomplishments.  Indeed, you are a perfect embodiment of the Con Spirito Award.  Thank you for the important contributions you have made to choral music in the city of Calgary and our very best wishes s you continue your work."
