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!
Congratulations to Westcoast Harmony (chorus champions) and No Strings (quartet champions), and to all competitors and participants. The webcast is still available - for more information please go to the regional website https://region26.ca/contest. Next year's convention and competition will be held in Calgary, April 30 - May 3, 2020 - see you there!
Rehearsals have started for Alberta Gold's 2019 show - The Next Season, a musical play. The Rag Tag Theatrical Society needs to choose the final show for their upcoming season. A simple decision or “Musical" chaos? Come out an see what happens on November 30 - matinee or evening performances. Ticket information will be available in the next few months.
