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.
Rhythm of the Rockies experienced a weekend of vocal and performance coaching by this amazingly gifted, focused, brilliant musician, director, coach, and arranger. Her approach this weekend provided us major musical and performing growth opportunites with permission to explore our inner selves while creating even more moving performances for our guests. Wow!
With the assistance of the Calgary Foundations Unique Opportunity Grant, Rhythm of the Rockies welcomed Mo Field on her return to Canada from Sweden. 60 of our members enjoyed Mo's creative talents and non-stop energy over a very wintery weekend at Entheos west of the city. We are grateful to the Calgary Foundation for helping to make this educational opportunity a huge success.
