Have a Listen:
Chartered in March 7, 1995, Grand Harmony Chorus is a group of dynamic women who share a love for singing 4-part a cappella music in the barbershop style. This Waterloo-based chorus has a membership of over 40 women of all ages who come from Kitchener, Waterloo, Cambridge, Guelph, Woolwich County, and beyond.
How Grand Harmony Chorus Was Formed
A group of women from the K-W four-part harmony chorus wanted something different, so they took the leap and formed a new ensemble. The original people who started this were
Diana Ceccato and the late Judy Ketchen, Peggy Senior, Sharon Beard, Jackie Stewart and Sherry Helmka. The group would practice in Sherry Helmka’s living room. They did not
have a bass, so they would use a four-part recording from Sweet Adelines International. Each of the members took on many executive roles for a while until more women joined the
chorus and they became hooked with the barbershop style of music. There was much discussion on what the name should be for the chorus and the founding members decided it
should be duly noted as Grand Harmony. Grand Harmony Chorus chartered in March 1995. We have over 40 members in our chorus and it has and it continues to be a fabulous
harmonious journey for everyone.
As a chapter of Sweet Adelines International, Grand Harmony Chorus endeavors to promote harmony, friendship, self-esteem, and a sense of belonging among women of all walks of life. The chorus delivers professional performances at a wide variety of venues, singing songs that traverse many styles that are sure to please a diverse audience.
The chorus meets weekly via hybrid rehearsals.
