Potluck Party!

Last night was Grand Harmony's Annual Potluck Party! The evening involved lots of food and singing with great friends. It took place at the residence of our President, Roxanne, and generally celebrates the completion of a year filled with private events, public shows and the contest season. It also celebrates the fact that summer has arrived!!

You can see a photo recap on our Facebook page, here.

Now we are taking a 2 week break, then it’s all about Christmas as we prepare for recording our Christmas CD in August. 

Grand Harmony takes stage at Christkindl Market

December 10, 2017 | Grand Harmony Chorus (& Sharp Attack Quartet) performed for the Christkindl Market audience. This was the market's 21st time taking place and it gets bigger each year.

They have nearly 100 craft and food vendors that take over Kitchener City Hall and Carl Zehr Square and a chunk of King Street.

This festival is always a blast to perform at! Can't wait for next year!

Grand Harmony's Sold Out Christmas Show a Success

November 26, 2017 | Tis the Season sold out in record time this year! The show was a joy to perform for a cappella fans, friends and family! The set included long-time favourites such as Carol of the Bells and gorgeous new ballads, such as Coventry Carol. The event featured quartets Key of She, Rezonation, Zamira, Serenity, Contour and Sharp Attack. And for an extra treat, guest group, The Holiday Harmony Ensemble performed. This ensemble included kids from 12 years of age to 24, each with incredible vocal talent.

Guests at the show were treated to home baked cookies, squares, treats, juice, coffee and more. Over 25 prize baskets were raffled off and won by those in attendance. 

Grand Harmony Teaches Tags at Eastbridge Idol Face-off

June 25, 2017, Eastbridge Community, Waterloo | Grand Harmony had such a blast running an 'Eastbridge Idol' Face-Off (sing-off) during the Eastbridge Neighbourhood Amazing Race.

Family teams ran through 30+ challenges and checkpoints. At our checkpoint, race teams were taught a 'tag' (i.e. small part of a song) in four part harmony. Teams sang in competition with each other. The winner moved on to their next clue while the other waited for the next team to come sing. It was ridiculously fun and we met some great singers in our neighbourhood! 

Canadian Road Show Was a Hit!

Saturday, June 10, 2017 @ 2pm & 7:30, Elmira | Grand Harmony Chorus celebrated Canada 150 with an a cappella journey across Canada!

From the Calgary Stampede to Corner Gas to Charlottetown and Celine Dion to Barenaked Ladies to Michael Bublé, it was all about Canada's best landmarks, music and customs - including a few dozen stops at Timmies...

A delicious spaghetti dinner between shows gave everyone a chance to meet, chat and dine with the chorus. Our fabulous volunteer team in the kitchen served up spaghetti, fettuccini, caesar salad, buns, refreshments and dessert.

Annual Garage Sale FUNdraiser :)

May 21, 2017, New Dundee | The Annual Grand Harmony Garage Sale took place this weekend as part of the New Dundee's town-wide garage sale. New Dundee's sale is a HUGE event that incorporates countless local families, businesses, comes complete with a parade, and often finishes off with a party in the park for residents. Since one of our members, Dianne, lives in the area, this has become a fun opportunity to do some spring cleaning, hang out with our harmony family, and raise some money for chorus initiatives. 

Each year, members and friends of the chorus donate items to this massive community garage sale. Jewellery, office furniture, appliances, toys, knick-knacks, collectibles, and odd and ends fill tables upon tables of sale items.
