Rhythm of the Rockie's trip to the Region 26 Contest in Saskatoon was an amazing success! Friday's quartet competition had three of our quartets performing and all three brought home awards. No Strings, who were the Regions 2015 champs, took first place AGAIN and will be heading to Las Vegas this fall to represent Region 26 in the International contest. As first place quartet, No Strings was provided with a Limo and champagne after the Contest to celebrate together and bask in the experience. Kaleidoscope, with their Jailbirds package, won the Open Division and Vox, with Rhythm member Nancy Ryan, won the Novice Quartet award. Congratulations to all of these talented ladies!

Members of Rhythm of the Rockies have a busy weekend ahead as they welcome Ryan Heller as coach for their annual weekend retreat. Ryan is the Master 700 Director of the Pride of Portland chorus and will be sharing his vast experience in Barbershop and a cappella music over the next 3 days. To balance all of the hard work that happens on the risers, the amazing retreat "Dream Team' has organized a weekend of food, fun and friendship.
Rhythm wrapped up 2015 with an appearance on Global TV and Christmas performances around Calgary. It was an exciting year of growth, a sold out show, outstanding fundraising, travel to the Las Vegas stage and new experiences for all of us! We're looking forward to new adventures in 2016 including our upcoming retreat, Regional competition in Saskatoon and lots of time spent sharing our 4 part harmony in the community. After a restful Christmas break we're back on the risers on Tuesday, January 12 at 7:15. We have many new faces on the risers taking us into the coming year and we're always welcoming new voices. Check us out right here on our website or find us on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.

Rhythm's performance at the Spruce Meadows International Market on Nov 15 was filled with the spirit of the season. Following the busy moments warming up and taking to the stage, singing our Drummer Boy/ Peace on Earth medley became particularly poignant following Fridays events in Paris. As we celebrate the holiday season through song and in our hearts we'll continue to be grateful for the peace and freedom that we share.
