A Calgary Choir is marking the 35th anniversary of the 1988 Winter Olympic Games in our city.
Nearly 170 members of Cool Choir took over the Central Library Sunday to sing a new arrangement of David Foster’s “Winter Games,” the iconic song featured in the opening ceremonies in 1988.

“The city has lost a lot of time through the pandemic and we’re trying to regroup in some shape or form,” Serafi said.
“I think it’s important to remember some of the better times from Calgary, and I feel that doing this today – this Flash Mob – has been a very nostalgic moment for so many people in the city, to take them back to that moment, the opening ceremony when this song was heard as a piece of music.”
