Alberta Heartland Chorus returned from 2018 contest very pleased and proud of their accomplishments. With an improved score, and a fifth place medal we felt that we had met our goal to be the best we could be. After a year of coaching, rehearsing, and building our craft every member contributed to our success.
There were a few glitches on the weekend. A new outlet centre opening right in front of the airport may have caused a delay or two. A last minute change in hotel rooms meant our two competing quartets had to move down the street to a different hotel. And of course a strike at the Sheraton topped it all off. But all was overcome by being flexible and focussing on why we were there.
