Calgary Multi-Chorus Night

Barbershop singing is alive and well in Calgary! Alberta Gold was thrilled to share the stage with barbershoppers from all over Calgary on June 19, 2019 at the annual Calgary Multi-Chorus night, hosted this year by Western Hospitality Singers. Each year choruses and quartets gather together for a social evening, with drinks, food and entertainment. Ambrosia quartet performed a hilarous parody, and we were treated to many other great performances, some funny, some very moving. Rhythm of the Rockies blew the roof off with the debut of their International Contest package and were rewarded with a standing ovation from their barbership peers. Calgary is the place for four-part harmony, barbershop style!
