Calgary’s professional vocal ensemble, VoiceScapes is delighted to present their 15th annual Sing Along Messiah concert at the beautiful Knox United Church in downtown Calgary. Sing Along Messiah is a performance where the audience is invited to sing along in the choruses. You, the audience, sing the choruses, talented young singers do the solos – what could be a better way to share Handel’s glorious “Messiah”? This year’s Sing Along Messiah will feature VoiceScapes and eleven up-and-coming vocal soloists from across Alberta, all led by conductor Claude Lapalme. Performances of Handel’s Messiah at Christmas are a time-honoured tradition in many English-speaking countries across the world. The piece has a broad appeal, not only to classical music aficionados, but also to those whose musical tastes generally lie elsewhere.

Right now brain injury forums and personal blogs are filled with stories of deep disappointment, despair and desperation as people describe their afflication with Post Concussion Syndrome (PCS). There is little or no support for those who don't recover within a few days of complete rest. At best it's scattered and hit-and-miss. There is a great economic cost to brain injury. Once independent people are unable to care for themselves or their families due to loss of productivity and even the inability to work. Loved ones of professional athletes. This 30 Day Crowdfund will run during the Giving Season. Giving up is a common theme. This is the reason why it is essential to test a comprehensive healing process for PCS. This is the reason why this project's time has come. And your donations are needed Today.

Come learn to drum and experience the many benefits drumming has to offer you. We will learn to play clear basic djembe tones, play beginner West African traditional and non traditional rhythms. Even though this is a beginners class, everything taught here will make you a better drummer, even if you have previous experience. The djembe is quite possibly one of the most versatile instruments around. The act of drumming itself transcends cultures, ethnicity, and age. Each session is 6 weeks long, 1 hour per week.

In this workshop, you will learn how to make your own super simple lip balm and a leather lip balm holder. Add to that some information about bees and beeswax and you're set for an evening of fun and learning. Please note this workshop runs longer than our other workshops and is not recommended for those under 12 years old as the stitching can be a challenge. Instruction and all materials are included. This workshop is limited to six participants only, so book early! If you have a larger group and are interested in the workshop, please let us know and we can create a custom workshop just for you. Estimated workshop length is 2.5-3 hours. Register at https://www.eventbrite.com/e/lip-balm-and-leather-tickets-30009805135?aff=calgaryArea

Downstage and Forte Musical Theatre with the generous support of Hit & Myth Productions proudly present the World Premiere of CRIME DOES NOT PAY by David Rhymer and Kris Demeanor Directed by Simon Mallett March 2-5 & 7-11, 2017 @ 7:30pm With a matinee Saturday, March 11 @ 2:00pm Engineered Air Theatre, Arts Commons (225 8 Avenue SE) Recommended for ages 16 & up Recognized internationally for work that is incisive, heartwrenching and darkly funny, Calgarians David Rhymer and Kris Demeanor have spun a true story into a brand-new musical that will plant gorgeous songs and explosive ideas in your head. Bob arrives in the big city in the late 1940s with a sketchbook full of comics about how the little guy always gets pushed into the dirt by corporations and politicians, but publishers say there’s no money in bleeding hearts. When Bob falls for Violet, a lounge singer with an abusive ex-husband, inspiration strikes! He gets his big break after sexing up his stories with ‘babes and blood’ - dark depictions of true crimes where the criminals are the heroes, in a hot new title called "Crime Does Not Pay". The comics become an overnight sensation but inspire a backlash from children’s advocate Eleanor Flood, who claims their racy content is spurring horrible copycat crimes. Turns out that the trappings of success, the threat of censorship and Bob’s possessive love of Violet make for one dangerous cocktail... Five years in the making, Crime Does Not Pay is one racket you’ll want to get in on! A HEADS UP: Crime Does Not Pay includes material that some people may find upsetting or triggering, including profanity, sexual innuendo, scenes of domestic violence, and references to suicide. If you would like to learn more about the content of the show before attending, please feel free to contact us.
