In this year of unprecedented change we are excited to see that the art of singing is very much alive in Calgary!

Thank you to our singers, teachers and adjudicators for making this festival possible.

Thank you to all of our donors. We would like to extend particular thanks to the The Ambrose University Music Department and The University of Calgary Music Department for their sponsorships of Classes IV and XVIII.
