Vice President

Sara Munkittrick

Sara's Bio

Past President 

Sara grew up in New Brunswick. She moved to Calgary from Toronto in 2016 and is currently a lawyer with the City of Calgary. 

She is excited about the community that ARC has formed and to be a part of it. Sara believes that singing is a beautiful way to express yourself and connect with other people, both those you sing with and those you sing for! Although It's too hard for her to pick just one favourite song, it might be "Edelweiss" from the movie The Sound of Music.

Past President

Patrick Cook

Patrick's Bio

Patrick has lived his entire life in Calgary, save for a short stint in Edmonton, where he attended the University of Alberta. With a business education in hand, Patrick has worked for both RBC and ATB since graduation, the latter he continues to work for today. Patrick has continued his financial education having completed the Canadian Securities Course and the Wealth Management Essentials course. 

Drawn to ARC by his partner's participation, Patrick has come to appreciate the atmosphere ARC has created and the strong sense of community it has been able to foster. Patrick's favourite song is "Governess Shadow" by July Talk.


Heather Moon

Heather's Bio

Heather was born and raised in Winnipeg, Manitoba. With education and experience in Foods and Nutrition, the lure of the mountains brought her out to Banff to work at a hotel. A year later, she settled in Calgary, where she currently works as a health and safety professional. Music and choir have always been a part of Heather's life, as she started singing in choirs at school, the church and joined the Winnipeg Girl's Choir to gain more training and experience. 

Heather says that ARC is a welcoming community that helps to build friendship, confidence and music skills and the opportunity to share our gifts (and hard work) with others. Music and singing are great opportunities to share emotion and a story through sound and to challenge yourself in learning new skills and songs. 

While her music tastes are eclectic, Heather always comes back to the old Broadway musical records she had in her collection; Grease, Fiddler on the Roof, Mary Poppins and Phantom of the Opera to name a few!


Tina Sinclair

Tina's Bio

Tina was born in Hobart, Tasmania - almost the furthest south you can go on the planet! She is a traveller, a therapist, a gardener and a water colour painter - things she likes to combine when taking in the sights and sounds of a new place! 

She says her favourite thing about ARC is β€œthe community and eagerness to do something in common, something shared. The excitement and challenge of live performances. The huge satisfaction and joy of hearing that harmony once we all get it together!” 

Music has always been a part of Tina's life. She fondly remembers singing in the car with her dad to distract from car sickness! To her, music is a way to feel and offer comfort, and her interests range from classical - especially baroque, through folk and musical theatre all the way to country! She says it's hard to beat the oldies in folk, PP&M, and John Denver.
