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 and surprising silent 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.

Thank you to everyone who attended or contributed to our 2018 event - you helped us raised more than $100,000! Funds raised will support the 18,000 square foot Performing Arts Youth Centre, a permanent home for the performing arts, and operations for the Youth Singers of Calgary.

THE ALLEGRO AUCTION

It’s like Sotheby’s if they’d had too much caffeine, and you didn’t have to pay. 

 

The Allegro Auction is more like an incredibly fun, fast-paced lottery than an auction. Hence the word allegro, which for all you non-melomaniacs out there, is a musical term for quick-paced. All of the items are donated by our generous partners. Bravuro Foursome and Primo Pair ticket holders will receive one Allegro Auction ticket per pair, redeemable for a prize item worth at least $150. Ticket numbers will be drawn by our host at random during the auction from 7:10 pm. When you hear your number called, GO! You and your partner will have 15 seconds to select your item. Once you've made your selection (good choice!) we'll whisk it away to coat check so it can be waiting for you when you depart, and the auction will continue with the next batch of winners. 

 
 

Our Sponsors

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.
