Up2Something

About the Choir

Established in 2003, Up2Something is a diverse group of men and women who enjoy eclectic, fun and often challenging repertoire. This non-auditioned mixed choir offers those with and without choral experience or the ability to read music a place where they can enjoy the camaraderie of others with similar interests. Costumes, staging, as well as "age and stage-appropriate" movement and choreography are used to enhance the music and bring their performances to life.

Infused into every performance is a rich and diverse repertoire, often extravagant costumes, and a healthy dose of humour. The incorporation of choreography and theatrical elements makes for a fun experience for performers and audience alike. Repertoire covers a diverse range of genres and styles and affords an abundance of creative opportunities.

Something Good

About the Choir

Something Good is the newest division of Adult Recreational Choirs - ARC. Bringing the gift of music and song to those living in seniors and supportive residences, marginalized populations and those who live with developmental and physical disabilities is the focus of this division. Something Good members spend time rehearsing and performing across the city of Calgary. Members share the gift of music with others through lighthearted, interactive performances. Audiences join in the music making experience through singing, playing percussion instruments and dancing! There is joy and magic when voices come together in harmony!


Rehearsals are Wednesdays from 1-3 pm @ First Church of the Nazarene on Richard Road SW. New members are always welcome! For more information, please contact info@archoirs.org.
