Congratulations to ONCUE who represented themselves and YSC with their performance to the delegates at Podium in Ottawa, a National Convention of
in the world of
Choral music. From all reports, their performance was outstanding in every way. They were the only group selected to perform (audition was done by blind jury summer of 2011) from Western Canada (west of Thunderbay). We are so proud of them and their amazing accomplishments. Thank you to those of you who supported this professional development and performance opportunity for ONCUE.
Donations for this YSC project can be sent to the Youth Singers office and designated to THE PODIUM
Comments from an ONCUE member-
I’m sure you’ve heard by now how WONDERFUL Podium was! On Cue had an amazing performance. We recieved tons of compliments and positive feedback- we blew them away with our creativity, professionalism, and innovation. We had a surge in our Facebook fans after Will announced it to our audience! Not only was On Cue great but I was personally able to do lots of networking with other conductors and publishers. I had lengthy conversations with publishers about what I have done and what’s to come. They gave me pointers and advice. However the best part was that they ALL already knew my name and compositions!! How cool!!
I am totally excited for Podium 2014 in Halifax. Even if On Cue doesn’t go (which would be a shame) I would like for Youth Singers to consider sending me and other directors to represent Youth Singers. This past Podium was incredibly eye-opening and reassuring that Youth Singers is an advanced organization with plenty to offer. I can’t wait for the next Podium to do even more networking!
Thanks, Shirl, for sending On Cue. The value of this mini-tour was priceless not only because the personal gain but the benefits it gave both our group and Youth Singers. So, thank you!!

Our thanks to everyone who has volunteered to come out and help us put on our major summer fundraiser on Thursday, June 7th! We are still seeking a few volunteers in the afternoon and evening of that day to help us out on the course and to help set up and run our silent auction.
JULY CASINO: A FEW GOOD “COUNT ROOM” VOLUNTEERS NEEDED!

TOUR 2013 to COSTA RICA
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”.
SILENT AUCTION ITEMS for the Golf Classic
Please bring any items in to the YSC office ASAP.
