Attend a Private Screening for PITCH PERFECT

Youth Singers has been offered the opportunity to attend an exclusive screening of PITCH PERFECT a new movie from Universal Studios that comes out October 5. Our screening date would be August 16th (possible mid-morning to early afternoon) at a movie theatre that is still to be determined in Calgary.

Here is a link to view the trailer.

Decidedly Jazz Danceworks members have also been invited to the screening. The movie is rated 14A so it is suitable for viewing by persons 14 years of age or older. Persons under 14 must be accompanied by an adult.

Bringing a friend or two to the movie would be a great way to show the perks of belonging to Youth Singers and if they enjoy the movie you can invite them to join Youth Singers with you this fall. Parents are also welcome to attend the screening.

If you are interested in attending on August 16 during the day, please email us back and let us know how many people including yourself, would like to come.


***There are only 8 spots left for ACT3 and the SENIOR HI group is filling fast as well so act now and don’t be disappointed. The tour can include another ensemble of performers from the other older divisions as well but still can’t increase the total size of the group.

We have deposited on a specific number of airline seats and accommodations and don’t want anyone to miss this opportunity. First come first serve until it is full – pass it on!***

All performers in S, A Y, Q, E, plus staff and travelers are eligible for this tour.

The Costa Rican’s have a saying – “Pura Vida”. It literally means “pure life”, but the saying goes beyond its simple translation – it symbolizes the idea of simply enjoying life and being happy. They use the phrase as their way of saying “hello”, “goodbye” and even “awesome”. Come along on the Youth Singers of Calgary’s tour to Costa Rica, and experience your own “Pura Vida”.
