"Spring" Update - March 2008

Happnin' has had a busy and full year so far. It all started with our annual retreat to Goldeye Lake in October where we had lots of fun working on our music and getting to kow each other. We joined forces with our counterparts at MacEwan to put on a winter Concert in early December at Con Hall. In January, we joined choirs from the TIME association for a weekend workshop at Camp Nakamun with Vocal Ensemble Sixth Wave. We will be performing in the ACF Choralfest Jazz festival on March 19 and we will be once again joining forces with the MacEwan Wednesday Night Big Band for a joint concert at Muttart Hall in Alberta College on March 8. Our year will conclude with our Spring Concert on April 7 at the UofA's Convocation Hall. Please keep an eye on our Schedule Page for more details.

Fall Concert

Happnin's Fall/Christmas concert will be held on Sunday, December 2, 2007 at 8PM in Convocation Hall on the UofA Campus. Tickets will be available from the Department of Music Office, Choir Members or at the door. Please see our Schedule Page for more details.
