This is the amazing true story of a diverse group of seven young, driven, Calgarian professionals who find their creative outlet and recharge in the tightly knit and uplifting family they've built together and sustained since 1998.
Seven diverse professionals come together with their creative family to joyfully perform an original arrangement.
A born leader who can look at projects from any lens to tell your story, he also has a trained musical foundation to help any project sing!
The featured song, "Warm Whispers," is an original arrangement that speaks to the safety in acceptance and subsequent freedom to be vulnerable, which is what enables our most creative selves to blossom. This music video will capture the beauty of being part of this creative community known as Altra Volta, where we grow as singers and as people.Go to profile
As a musical theatre geek at heart, I was immediately drawn to Altra Volta. Feeling the energy and presence of their performance live was tangible. I want to capture that feeling and share it with anyone whose heart sings in the company of true musicians that aren't afraid to express themselves and be vulnerable for their craft.Go to profile
Meet our talented and charismatic team! We are skilled, personable men and women with diverse gender and racial identities, from diverse professional and educational backgrounds, that can appeal to a wide community of Calgarians and Canadians.
We are humbled by our following of audiences who come from all walks of life! Altra Volta is a place where creativity germinates to blossom in every aspect of our seven diverse lives, and consequently, in the wider community.
Encourage others to stay connected to their most creative and inspiring selves. It’s important to showcase the arts in local communities to make space for creative expression because it’s contagious, joyful and makes the world better!
We are proud to support our local communities by sharing our music at charity events for non-profit organizations like the True Patriot Love Tribute Dinner and Inn from the Cold, and even performing at local malls during the holiday season!
Finding communities with shared passions that push and support you to try new things, take risks and think outside of the box, inspires us to be more creative in our work, cultivate deeper and fulfilling relationships, live a more joyful life, and appreciate diversity.
This story will begin by introducing us briefly to the seven singers of Altra Volta in their day-to-day lives, leaving their work and other obligations. Hilary kisses the curly heads of her small, identical sons, Ryan shuts down his computer and waves to a colleague, Sarah is giving goodbye hugs and waves to her students on their way to the school bus, etc, and they all make their way to a performance venue.
If it was easy, everyone would do it! Part of our story involves showing how none of this is possible without hard work, perseverance and a long-term commitment to our craft.
“Warm Whispers” provides a wide visual canvas. Performers on a stage may come with an expected look, but we have planned the spotlighting to play on the sunlight in the day to day scenes, with flares and warmth. The look will bring a saturation and intimacy to the piece as we transition from scene to scene, bringing us inside the story.
We may be a bit fresh on the social media scene (Instagram, Twitter, Facebook), but keep an eye out for our feisty and loyal following. We'll be building our content daily before and during the voting period to help share and promote our STORYHIVE page and build support for our project!!
To keep our fans and voters enticed and excited about STORYHIVE, Altra Volta will shine a light on a different member of our group every day during the voting period. 7 days, 7 a cappella members, 7 stories. Each feature will be a collage of short video, photos and text telling the story of each member and will paint a clear picture of our unique personalities and contributions to the group.
During the weekend of April 29/30, Altra Volta will perform LIVE on Facebook for their social media followers with the intent to increase our reach in communities outside our own, and to help promote and build ongoing support for our STORYHIVE project!! This Facebook LIVE concert will also include a small group of in-person audience members. All of our audience (in person and online) will be encouraged to share, vote, and continue supporting us through our STORYHIVE page.
