How to Take a Marching Band to Europe

  The day after Stampede ended, the Calgary Stampede Showband took the Calgary Stampede’s western spirit internationally as they embarked on their 2017 tour to compete in the World Music Contest in Kerkrade, the Netherlands. The tour will culminate in a final performance of their 2017 production, Mosaic, for a 20,000 person audience on July 31, 2017. Held every four years, the World Music Contest is like the Olympics of the performing arts – it is internationally recognized as the most significant international festival for music for wind and brass instruments.

There were lot of people that came for both the men’s amateur and pro divisions on Saturday and filled the seats and the grass areas,” Said Nick McMorrow, vice president, Alberta Strongman Association. The events were separated into amateur and pro divisions for both men and women. In addition, spectators also had the chance to enjoy CrossFit and Powerlifting, as well as information and demonstrations on Strongman, Strongman Kids, MAS wrestling and Highland Games. “The Stampede has been very generous with assisting in promoting the event, accreditations for volunteers, providing water and resources to ensure the events were a success.  This was above and beyond our expectations,” added McMorrow. “I have feeling we will be back for next year, with a year’s preparation I believe we can make this into one of the […]
