Let's Fly - An Evening With Rhythm of the Rockies June 27 2015
What a night! 'Let's Fly' took off to a packed house in a transformed Fresh Start facility gym. With preshow refreshments and entertainment by the 'HusBand', the crowd eagerly took part in the silent auction and raffles before taking their seats on a hot, hot Calgary evening.
Rhythm's first set included some of their repertoire favorites with Mary offering a bit of the history along the way. The chorus' new Las Vegas costume "Moxie" made it's debut in the second half which started with an energetic Lady Gaga's 'Edge of Glory'. The set featured the packages that Rhythm will take to the International stage at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas for the semi-finals and finals (hopefully!).
Quartets, Kaleidoscope, Zen and No Strings sounded great and added their best to the evening.
Raffles and a wide variety of silent Auction items were a big hit. Many thanks to all those who took part as donors and buyers to help us on our way to Vegas. Enjoy your winnings and purchases smile emoticon
In addition to thanking our audience, a big shout out to the show team and its many subcommittees, members of the HusBand, Fresh Start staff and residents (amazing!), Mansel for emceeing, Sami and her family for food prep and service, volunteers for the door, silent auction, raffles and other odd jobs, Bob Hager for the use of his sound equipment, all the helpers who moved chairs and whatever was needed at the end of the night. And of course to Mary and Joanne for getting the songs and steps ready for this great event!
With 'Let's Fly' Rhythm of the Rockies is seriously en route to Vegas!
