MASS ENERGY Choral Concert

28 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 several of Calgary’s oil patch choirs for both individual performances as well as a gigantic combined-choirs finale. This year we are proud to feature ConocoPhillips Choir, Repsol Choir and TransCanada In Harmony choir.

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 16th 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 TransCanada in Harmony (TCiH) was formed in the spring of 2009 and consists of core, contract, retirees and previous employees. Karen Nell-Bennett has provided outstanding choral direction since January 2010 which has greatly improved our musicianship and repertory.  We were pleased to welcome Gavin Caldwell as our new accompanist this fall. We hold performances twice annually (Summer & Christmas themed) in the lobbies of the TransCanada Tower and nearby buildings in the downtown core. We have participated in Choral Fest, TC employee Forums, United Way Kick Offs, the employee Stampede Breakfast,  Senior’s Centers and fundraising for local charities. This is the third year TCiH has the pleasure of participating in the Mass Energy Chorale Concert spreading Christmas Joy and Harmony to Calgary’s downtown Community.
