While most teenagers would rather fake the death of a relative than give up their weekend to classical music, the Westside Children's Choir is more than willing to spend a Saturday afternoon raising their voices in song. In fact, this weekend the group will be hitting the stage at Mount Royal College for a concert sponsored by the Bach Festival Society.

After splitting a pair of games versus the SAIT Trojans last weekend, the University of Calgary Dinos women's hockey team faced another inner-city rival, the Mount Royal College Cougars at the Olympic Oval Fri., Jan. 26.

University of Calgary president Dr. Harvey Weingarten will continue his reign over campus--for the next five years, at least.
