MASS ENERGY Choral Concert

29 Nov Posted by in Schedule | Comments
MASS ENERGY Choral Concert
 

A HUGE audience favourite – and for good reason – the annual MASS ENERGY choral concert brings together four of Calgary’s oil patch choirs for both individual performances as well as a gigantic combined-choirs finale. Bring your singing voice and join in!

The ConocoPhillips Choir is one of the oldest of the oil patch choirs, starting around 40 years ago! The choir’s members include employees and retirees of various companies, from amateur to trained singers! They can be found entertaining morning and lunchtime listeners in the +15 in Gulf Canada two weeks before Christmas! Once again, the ConocoPhillips Choir is led by John Morgan, who is the Artistic Director of Kantorei, the Vocal Director of the Young Canadians, and much more!

 

 

 

The Repsol Choir is in its 15th year and performs under the direction of musician, composer & musicologist Bruce Petherick, accompanied by local artist Ron Proctor at the piano.  This four-part choir performs in the spring and during the Christmas season and takes the role of company ambassador seriously, performing at various downtown and community venues. Highlights for the Repsol Choir include having released a full-length CD “Wreath of Carols”, a fundraiser for the United Way of Calgary and recorded under the name of Talisman Energy Choir, as well as the annual “Feel the Energy” mass energy choir concert. This corporate choir continues to challenge itself with more complex pieces, mixing contemporary favourites with classical compositions, and having a lot of fun along the way!

 

The Suncor Energy Choir is a group of employees and interested outsiders who enjoy singing on a regular basis. It was formed in 1973 as the Pacific Choir then renamed the Petro-Canada Chorale in 1978 and finally became the Suncor Energy Choir in 2009. The choir performs primarily in the downtown core at charity functions and senior citizen homes.   Our repertoire covers a wide range of music including folk, jazz, classical & popular. Instruction & guidance is provided by our director, Susan Woodward and the choir is open to everyone who enjoys singing. We meet every Wednesday in room 17E in the Suncor Energy Centre from 11:45 am to 1:00 pm.

 

 

The TransCanada in Harmony (TCiH) choir was formed in the spring of 2009 and consists of core and contract employees as well as retirees.   Karen Nell-Bennett has provided outstanding direction since January 2010 which has greatly improved our musicianship and repertory. This year we look forward to working with Nathaniel Schmidt, our new accompanist.  We hold performances twice annually (Summer & Christmas themed) in lobby performances of buildings in and around the
TransCanada Tower. We have participated in Choral Fest and have performed for TC Employee Forums, United Way Kick Offs, the employee Stampede Breakfast,  Senior’s Centers and fundraising for localcharities.  TCiH is excited again to be joining the Mass Energy Choir for its second year, helping to spread Christmas Joy and Harmony to Calgary’s downtown Community.
