2014-15 Dance to the Music! Encore & ARCS AGM

on Tue, 09/29/2015 - 18:48

Come join us for an afternoon of fun and frivolity – and a little bit of ARCS business – as we celebrate the past season! 

On Saturday, October 24, 2015, from 12:00pm to 2:30pm at Cardel Theatre (180 Quarry Park Blvd.) we will mix, mingle and munch as we show highlights from last season’s Year End Show.  We will also conduct our Annual General Meeting – a great opportunity to learn more about ARCS’ operations and to cast your vote on our incoming Board of Directors. The Adult Recreational Choir Society of Calgary invites you, a member of one of our fine choirs to attend.  A few of the items we will be covering are as follows:
  • Election of the Board of Directors
  • A review of the administrative and artistic activities of our organization
  • Presentation of the budget 
We strongly encourage you to attend and have a part in the future of this exciting organization.
NOTE: We require a quorum of 70 people for the Annual General Meeting.  Please RSVP below to confirm your attendance.

Love is in the Air!

The ARCS 2015-16 Season is off to a soaring start! Our warmest welcome to all new and returning singers to our family of choirs. Our theme this season is "Love is in the Air" and a rich diet of musical gems has been selected to challenge, exhilirate and entertain.
Now in our 14th Season, ARCS continues to provide adults from all walks of life a non-auditioned, recreational choral experience. Our community continues to grow as we awaken, nurture and share the magic of voices in harmony. Our Family of Choirs includes Up2Something (mixed-voice performing choir); Up2Christmas (women's performing choir); Something Lite (mixed-voice non-performing choir); and She's Up2Something (women's performing choir). Our performances are enjoyed by thousands each year through our signature concerts at Christmas and Springtime.
With the start of another season comes the excitement of fresh music, new friends, familar faces, and endless possibilities. We thrive on the energy of our members, who contribute countless volunteer hours to ensure our organization flourishes. The artistic and admin teams look forward to collaborating with our singers to make our 14th season a great success.
If you're new to ARCS, please take some time to become familiar with our website. Under the "Members' Links" tab you'll find some useful resources to assist in your learning. If you're thinking about joining a choir, have a look at the "Join Us" tab and consider dropping in to a rehearsal to check us out. Please note that we fill up quickly, so not all programs may be accepting new singers.

Season Finale Success!

Congratulations to all for a stunning season finale! "Dance to the Music", ARCS' 2014-15 production took the stage at the Arts Commons' Martha Cohen Theatre on June 6 and 7 in three sold-out performances. With repertoire ranging from Big Band to Country, Disco to Hip Hop, the choirs of ARCS sang and danced their way through a fast-paced, entertaining and fun song and dance extravaganza.
Up2Something and She's Up2Something combined forces once again to close ARCS' 13th Season, joined by some talented guests and an entourage of behind-the-scenes sound and lighting pros, backstage volunteers and a host of movers and shakers. Nothing of this magnitude comes together without hours of rehearsal, talented leadership, dedicated volunteers and stamina. We had all of these in spades and what a show it was!
The ARCS Family of Choirs extends heartfelt thanks to each and every one that played a part in making "Dance to the Music" a success. Our non-auditioned, adult recreational choirs continue to flourish thanks to the passion and dedication of our members, our fans and our supporters. Hats off to you all!
Summer is here and we're gearing up for another season of singing and, ahem, dancing. Those wishing to keep their vocal cords in shape over the summer can enjoy "Something Lite Summer" while others opt for the start of our performing choirs in the fall. We're going strong and looking forward to singing with you in 2015-16!
Happy Summer Everyone!
