Stampede City Chorus: "I'll Be Home For Christmas"

Stampede City Chorus
"I'll Be Home For Christmas"

A Holiday Concert review

Great fun last night attending a Christmas-themed musical presentation by the long-running Stampede City Chorus - 50 years and still going strong!

Combining a larger chorus with break-out quartets, the A Capella barbershop group blended ample vocal talents with a great sense of family-friendly humour - groaners mainly, but well in keeping with the spirit of the festivities. 

Spanning decades of popular Christmas and holiday selections the chorus hit high marks for every age group - there's something about this style of music that invokes the best of the season - carolling and warm wishes for listeners. 

There was even a bit of New Orleans with Captain Banjo (Johnny Thorson & friends), with slide trombone, tuba and of course a banjo. A great sound to complement the vocalists at the end...

It so happens that if you live in the Calgary area, they are looking for a few good men. Find out more my clicking on the Stampede City Chorus website link.

Fun for the members clearly, and just as much for the audience!

A really delightful show, loved it! Puts the Christmas "warm and fuzzy" feeling in you.
