The Adult Recreational Choirs (ARC) has brought Calgarians to their feet for the past 16 years with inventive, spectacular and entertaining stage productions featuring 150 voices, dazzling lighting, colorful costumes and eclectic repertoire. E:VOLUTION brings to life a fresh creative vision celebrating human innovation and invention. This entertaining, fast-paced production featuring Jonathan Love as our Guide, takes us on an epic musical frolic with many familiar songs and a nod to the men and women who have transformed the world as we know it.
Established in 2003, the Adult Recreational Choirs are committed to awakening, nurturing and sharing the magic of voices in harmony. Their season finales are popular with all ages and have included “British Invasion”, “Love is in the Air” and most recently “O Canada! My Home”. The community organization, led by Artistic Director and founder Brian Bowman, has flourished by exposing adults to the joy of singing, while delivering an entertaining and unique choral experience to audiences.
E:VOLUTION assembles a cast of 150+ performers in a spectacular production best described as an “eclectic frolic”. Songs to be performed include the classic “Moondance” and the contemporary “Brainstorm”; tribute is paid to flight and Amelia Earhart with “Fly Away Home”, to Alexander Graham Bell with “Telephone”, and to planet earth with Michael Jackson’s “Earth Song”. The combined choirs will also perform “Fly to Paradise”, a piece composed for one of the world’s first virtual choirs, consisting of more than 5,000 singers from more than 100 countries.

Alberta Theatre Projects (ATP) has been the resident tenant in the courtyard-shaped, Georgian-style Martha Cohen Theatre since 1985. Tiered levels of seats form a three-quarter circle around the performing area eliminating the separation between the audience and performers. The farthest seat from the stage is a mere 39 feet away.
Situated in the heart of Arts Commons beside Jack Singer Concert Hall, Martha Cohen Theatre received state-of-the-art sound upgrade in 2014, as well as all new seats and a new lighting console in 2016, ensuring that it remains at the top of theatre industry standard. The Martha Cohen Theatre was named after the late Dr. Martha Cohen ($1M donated by her husband in honour of her birthday).
