HEARTS OUT 2018 will take place Thursday March 1 in the Lobby of the Jack Singer Concert Hall.

Stay tuned for ticket details.


Creating a home, one song at a time.


Hearts Out is the annual fundraising gala for Youth Singers of Calgary. The evening’s festivities include fabulous entertainment, a boisterous 'reverse' auction, plenty of food, a dance floor so we can break it down until bedtime, and of course drinks, for those who require a little liquid courage to properly shimmy and shake.

After raising $82,000 in 2017, in 2018 the focus will be on raising funds for the Youth Singers to purchase the 16,000 ft Performing Arts Youth Centre - creating a permanent home for the performing arts.

About Us


The Performing Arts Youth Centre

The Performing Arts Youth Centre was built in 2009 by the Youth Singers. What began as a large empty warehouse space in the Highfield Industrial Park area is now a vibrant 18,000 sq. ft.centre, housing  rehearsal studios, a wardrobe area, a set building room, and a music library.

The Youth Singers of Calgary

After seeing a need in the community, Shirley Penner created the Youth Singers in 1985. She then enlisted the help of Darlene Dusevic and Tricia Penner, and together they were able to create an opportunity for young people to express themselves onstage through music, dance and theatre. For the past 30 years, the Youth Singers of Calgary have been providing kids and teens in Calgary with more than a place to showcase and hone their musical talents, they’ve created a place for them to belong. The program gives kids and teens from varied backgrounds the chance to grow, forge friendships, and most importantly belong, one note at a time.
