Members of Western Hospitality Singers attended the 100th anniversary Vimy Ridge commemoration at the Royal Canadian Legion Centennial Branch Sunday April 9th.

They performed the anthems O Canada and God Save The Queen, plus other chorus repertoire.

The Canadiana medley and The Maple Leaf Forever were particularly appreciated by the audience, many of whom were singing along.

In turn, our WHS guys sang along with Legion members on Pack Up Your Troubles and It’s A Long Way to Tipperary!

 

Singing Valentines are fun. Crystal works here in Calgary for a foundation that works with adolescent and adult autism. The sender of the Valentine was Larry, her boyfriend, from the Vancouver.
The quartet is the newly registered "Blend The Rules". 
Matt could not make it today so Bob sang lead and Doug filled in on bari. Murray is tenor and Craig is bass.

On Wednesday, January 11th, members of WHS again visited the Calgary Food Bank as volunteer workers.

This time they had a little something extra to contribute, in addition to their labour.

On behalf of Western Hospitality Singers, the volunteers presented a donation to assist the Food bank in its worthy efforts.  

A cheque representing the $ 5,000.00 net proceeds of our Christmas shows was given to Food Bank CEO James Mc Ara. 

 

First there's work - then it's not unusual for singing to break out.

A number of Western Hospitality Singers members sang for patients and their families at six Calgary hospices in the evenings of December 6th, 7th, and 8th.

The number of men who joined in a VLQ (Very Large Quartet) varied between 9 and 13 each night.

This is an annual outreach project for the chorus, sponsored and organized by the Bearspaw Lions Club.

We appreciate the opportunity to share the gift of song with those having a difficult Christmas season.

   

21 singers, representing all 4 Alberta BHS chapters, met in Red Deer on Saturday March 12, 2016 to participate in the second annual Alberta Harmony Platoon.

M.C. and organizer Murray Young got the ball rolling and kept it moving, assigning quartets, giving them names like "Instant Plastic", and drawing songs..

Singers were were assigned to quartets, and songs were drawn and assigned to each quartet from the 6 songs which had been learned in advance by the particiants. 

The first round of singing featured a chance to rehearse the selected song, while rounds 2 and 3 songs were drawn and then performed immediately.

A good time was had by all and some fine singing ensued ( though not always perfectly for an entire song or by all 4 members of a quartet).
