I’d like to invite you all to one of my favourite events of the year.
Every year about this time The Royal City Ambassadors put on their annual charity show. The Ambassadors are a men’s chorus and quartet organization that promotes the performance and enjoyment four-part a cappella harmony. The natural, un-encumbered music of the human voice.
“The Royal City Ambassadors are pleased to be on the stage of River Run to present their 41st annual show. “Experiencing Technical Difficulties” will delight young and old in the audience as the chorus shares their infectious humour and love of singing. In addition, the zany antics of this year’s guest quartet CORNERSTONE will complement a great evening!
The Ambassadors are a group of men from all walks of life who love to sing in four-part a cappella harmony. Every Tuesday evening they gather from Guelph and surrounding communities to enjoy singing, fellowship and fun. The Guelph Chapter is proud to raise funds annually in support of “Harmonize for Speech”. These funds assist organizations locally and provincially to assist individuals with speech disorders.”
I’ve attended a number of these shows in the past and have always enjoyed them. None of the men are professional singers, just a bunch of regular guys; bus drivers, computer geeks, accountants, and the like, who really enjoy getting together just to sing. And they do it very well.
The show includes not just great comedy and great songs by the chorus and it’s member quartets, but specials guests “The Cornerstones” and a late addition, the Centennial Concert Choir.
But most importantly, the show supports a very worthy cause. As mentioned above the Ambassadors sing to raise money for Harmonize for Speech, an organization that provides much needed support for those who suffer from speech disorders. This can happen for a variety of reasons from birth defects to stroke. They as their motto says, “We Sing That They Shall Speak.”
So if you’re going to be in the Guelph area on March 27th or 28th, follow the link below to the River Run box office and grab a few tickets for the show. use the email link to have a member of the Ambassadors arrange to get the tickets to you. You be glad you did!
Until next time… Sing!
