   An A Cappella Celebration                    May 25-26, 2018 – Calgary, Alberta 

Hosted by Western Hospitality Singers


On behalf of Western Hospitality Singers,  we welcome all of you to the 2018 Evergreen District Division III Convention and A Cappella Festival  in Calgary.  It is an honour to host the Convention this year and we hope that all of you and your guests will join us for a wonderful convention. 

Our theme this year is ‘An A Cappella Celebration’ .   In addition to the Division contest of Barbershop Chorus and Quartet competitors from Alberta, we also have a cappella groups from Alberta High Schools who will be competing for prizes.  This is an opportunity for them to hear and appreciate Barbershop singing and performing.  The event is an extension of our chorus’ youth outreach programs.   They include sponsoring and exhibiting with Choir Alberta, our annual Barbershop Challenge to high school and college choirs, and the Randy Peters Memorial Scholarship awarded to an educator to attend Harmony University. 

This year the contest and show venue is the Bethany Chapel, an 800 seat facility near Mount Royal University. 

The Headquarters hotel is the Grey Eagle Resort Hotel located a short distance from the contest venue.   This is a four star plus hotel with lots of amenities and we have a preferred rate for attendees for this convention. 

A downloadable PDF copy of the full registration package is attached to this event listing.  The Convention will kick off with an Ice-breaker on Friday evening.  It will be an opportunity to socialize and also to rehearse the ABC songs.  The contest and evening show will be Saturday May 26 at the Bethany Chapel.  After the show we will return to the Headquarters hotel for the Afterglow.   Maps and routes for both the Headquarters Hotel and Bethany Chapel are also included in this Registration Package. 

We hope you will enjoy the many highlights Calgary offers during your stay.  We’re confident that the copious amounts of snow we’ve received this year will ALL be melted. Check out the Glenbow Museum, the National Music Centre, breakfast atop the Calgary Tower on Sunday. 

We look forward to joining you in song here in Calgary in May.  If you have questions don’t hesitate to email or phone.
