Rhythm of the Rockies was once again blessed to be a part of the citizenship ceremony held at Heritage Park- this year on Heritage Day! We sang as guests arrived, heard the pledges of allegiance to our wonderful country and watched the 101 new Canadians from 28 countries receive their certificates. Of course this auspicious event ended with a rousing rendition of Oh Canada!
After the festivities we strolled over to the Wainwright hotel and sang a "set" for visitors to the park.
Sigh! Saw a few goose bump shivers in the audience. How fun!

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!
