Thank you to all our family and friends for sharing in our dress rehearsal for Las Vegas. We were ecstatic to sing our two semi final songs and then our finals "performance" package unveiling our prop for the first time ever.
Three Rhythm of the Rockies quartets each performed a piece as well.
Our competing quartet, No Strings, serenaded us with their semi finals songs plus one.
Las Vegas- here we come!
Rhythm of the Rockies was honored and blessed to perform at Heritage Park for the citizenship ceremony where 105 new Canadians took their oaths and then sang again in front of the Wainwright hotel.
Many heartfelt speeches at the citizenship ceremony concluding with Calgary's Mayor Naheed Nenshi talking about his three wishes for Canada. His wish is that every Canadian perform three acts of service every year.

The Western Canada- Region 26 competition is over and Rhythm of the Rockies would like to congratulate Westcoast Harmony and Glow quartet for their first place finishes. Way to rock it ladies. Now the waiting game to see which of our other awesome quartets and choruses get a wildcard into the International competition!
Kathy Helfrick- Our Soul Sister 2017 (and also the two lovely ladies presenting to her- Phil and Shannon)
Kathy- as was mentioned last night- you rock our world! This prestigious honour was given to you with all our love because you exemplify the best of Sweet Adelines: you share your talents; you inspire and lead and always give generously to enhance the well-being of our chorus; you truly embody the heart and “soul” of RotR.
Thank you thank you thank you with all OUR hearts and SOULS.
