Rhythm of the Rockies takes the Stage on Saturday, Apr 15 at the Western Canadian Region 26 Contest at TCU Place in Saskatoon.  We'll also be cheering on our quartets - No Strings, Kaleidoscope and Vox as they perform on Friday, Apr 14.  Good luck to all!

 

 

Our amazing show committee has wrapped up their project and what a huge success it was. Let's Fly - An Evening With Rhythm of the Rockies involved a lot of hard work and talent on and off the risers. We'd like to acknowledge the companies and individuals who donated items for our silent auction. We hope that you'll consider these community minded enterprises and individuals the next time you're in the market for their items.

On Canada Day, our members were reminded once again how fortunate we are to live in this great country.  In the presence of local, provincial and federal dignataries we were honored to share the special moment as Calgary's newest Canadian citizens took their oath.

Singing O Canada at Heritage Park with these special guests has become a highlight of our performance calendar.  Next we headed out into the park and the sunshine to share our songs and celebrate with the Canada Day crowd.  

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!). 

Rhythm was honored to be a part of the 5th bienniel Calgary Sings hosted by ARCS in April.  This is always a great event and the chance to hear a variety of Calgary's choral groups.  You could feel the energy before the show even started and performers and audience were caught up in in throughout the evening.

With our high energy Lady Gaga and Queen numbers and our newest song making it's performance debut, Rhythm members performed for a full house and appreciative audience.   Thanks to ARCS for including us in this years show supporting the Carewest Music Program.

 

Rhythm has been busy in 2015 preparing for an exciting year as we head to Las Vegas and SAI International in October.  We welcomed Sandy Marron at our annual retreat weekend working and reworking our Contest songs.  Her energy and creative talents kept us focussed on great things to come. Kudos to our newest members who worked so hard all weekend.  “ALL IN’ was the theme for our Saturday fun night as we rolled the dice in true Vegas style with entertainment, games and an “Out of Sequins” fashion show.  Great team of organizers to make this one of our top Retreats ever!

Phillippa was one of 10 ROTR members who traveled to Baltimore for this years SAI convention in November.  As past winners of the Harmony Classic, our chorus had the pleasure of distributing medals to this years 1st place winners - City of Gardens from Victoria.  Our director, Mary Hager and team leader, Linda Redwood were on stage as this years winner was announced.  This is the third consecutive year that Region 26 has won the Harmony Classic!   Mary also did a great job as emcee for the second half of the chorus semi-finals - a real honor for her and another milestone for our chorus.   4 of our members were convention assistants and you can be sure that they were all taking notes on what we're in for in 2015 in Las Vegas!

Rhythm of the Rockies started the summer with a smokin' performance at the end of the ride for the 12 Stop Motorcycle Ride for Fresh Start Recovery Centre.  Our Flash Mob start was a hit with a great crowd and a wonderful organization. 

On Canada Day we were honoured to sing for the Citizenship Ceremony at Heritage Park  welcoming 75 new Canadians and then performing in the sunshine on the busy grounds of Heritage Park. 

Summer rehearsals making our own adventures included Hawaii night and an evening getting into the spirit of lady Gaga as we took on the challenge of Edge of Glory.
