We unveiled our contest songs that we are singing on May 5 in Surrey, BC as well as our new competition costume.  Kaleidoscope and Quartz quartets engaged us with some great tunes and No Strings and Zenergy quartets blew us away with their competition songs.  Thanks to our family and friends for being our amazing audience at this "dress rehearsal" leading up to the Region 26 competion May 4 and 5.

 

 

 

 

 

Rhythm of the Rockies- Soul Sister 2018

Nancy Kanuka is, in her own words, a “full-time” Sweet Adeline! She discovered barbershop singing with Chinook Winds Chorus and The Generation Gap Quartet while a U of C student in the 1970s. She returned to the organization in 1991 and is now a member of 2 Calgary choruses: Rhythm of the Rockies and Alberta Gold Chorus and also sings with Ambrosia Quartet. There’s lots of repertoire in that head of hers!

In her spare time, she also completed her Director Certification Program and became a Certified Director.

Corinna Garriock- captivating, creative, celebrated, charged, charismatic, classy, coaxing, commanding, conceptual, consummate, convincing, crowned Corinna.

Wow- what a weekend we had at Entheos Retreat near Bragg Creek.

Corinna- you opened our eyes to the world of the music judge and how audiences perceive the stories we tell in song. You were inspiring. There were so many compliments coming from the risers and one of them tells it all, "I was so engaged and caught up with Corinna's coaching that the time just flew by."

Thank you from Rhythm of the Rockies- we will excitedly apply all that we gleaned from our weekend together.

Singing- scientifically proven to cause happiness. Come try it out for yourself.

Add friendships, vocal education, community performances and competitions. Who could ask for anything more!

Rhythm of the Rockies chorus welcomes guests and prospective members to our weekly rehearsals on Tuesdays from 7-10pm.

Rhythm of the Rockies meets at (but is not affiliated with) The Performing Arts Youth Centre, 1371 Hastings Crescent SE, Calgary.

We have returned from the Sweet Adelines International Competition held in Las Vegas! Women's acappella at its best! We are honored to have placed in the top 20 choruses worldwide. We joined competing choruses from Sweden, USA, Scotland, New Zealand, Canada and more. We are so excited to have achieved 17th place amongst more than amazing 550 SAI acappella choruses!

A Special Thank You to everyone who supported us in every way to help us get to this level.

And now we are re-energizing to get back to what we do best. Singing, connecting, entertaining, rehearsing.

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!
