Something Christmas!

on Mon, 12/15/2014 - 13:16
The ARCS Family of Choirs proudly presented three performances of "Something Christmas" on December 7 and 8 and Riverpark Church.  Along with emcee and storyteller Steve Olson, Up2Christmas and Up2Something delighted audiences with performances of seasonal favorites, including "Jingle Bells", "Lo, How a Rose E'er Blooming", "Huron Carol" and "We Need a Little Christmas".  The combined choir of 150 voices served up spine-tingling renditions of "Do You Hear What I Hear?" and "O Holy Night".  The audience joined in on a special "Holiday Sing-Along" that included "Deck the Hall" and "We Wish You a Merry Christmas".  A grand time was had by all!
2014 marked the 10th Anniversary of "Up2Christmas" - a seasonal chorus that began in 2005 under the direction of Brian Bowman.  Over time, it has become a women's chorus.  Under the direction of Michelle Kotelko, it has flourished and grown to its present size of approximately 75 enthusiastic and talented women.  Up2Something - a mixed chorus of some 85 men and women -- has lent there voices to the annual Christmas production and 2014 was no exception.  Video recordings of the exceptional performances of these two choirs is available on YouTube along with a selection of photos from the production, available by clicking here.
ARCS is now accepting new singers to two of its programs: She's Up2Something and Something Lite.  More information on these excellent singing opportunities is available by clicking on the "Join Us" tab.  Up2Something and She's Up2Something are looking ahead to the upcoming ARCS Annual Talent Show & Silent Auction, Calgary Sings!, and the 2015 season finale, "Dance to the Music!".
On behalf of the members, Board, Artistic and Administrative Teams of ARCS, we wish you and yours a very Merry Christmas, happy holidays and a healthy, prosperous New Year!
