Nine great choirs…one unforgettable night!
The 2013 edition of Calgary Sings! featured a rich assortment of adult choirs from Calgary and area, each unique and special, all were eager to share their love of singing! The event, presented by the Adult Recreational Choir Society of Calgary (ARCS) and hosted by the Heebee-jeebees, culminated in a breathtaking Mass Choir performance of more than 400 voices.
Calgary Sings! is a celebration of choral music in our community. Net proceeds from this event will be donated to the Calgary Health Trust in support of Music Therapy for residents of Carewest Continuing Care Centres in Calgary. ARCS has provided more than $50,000 of funding to this worthwhile cause since 2005 in large part through the success of Calgary Sings!
