Celebrating Diversity of Women!

 

"We want to sincerely thank the York Harmony Chorus for being part of our Celebrating the Diversity of Women event!! We appreciated your support, time and talent. Everyone I spoke with loved your performances and the flash a capella! Personally, I loved the song about music. It made me misty. Your contribution made celebrating International Women's Day extra special! We haven't completed our final tally but we've no doubt that the event raised a healthy donation to Women's Centre of York Region. Thank you!"

 

Best regards,

Janet Bell Crawford

YHC Welcomes our newest corporate sponsor - PACE Credit Union

YHC is excited to welcome our newest corporate sponsors!  PACE Credit Union can trace its roots back to the Farmunited Credit Union which began in 1940.  PACE began as a credit union for employees of the Peel Region and the name PACE is an acronym for Peel Region and Co-op Employees. Over the years, PACE has grown through the amalgamation of a number of smaller credit unions, enabling more to be done for members as one large credit union.

Please support those who support us! Visit www.pacecu.ca

A Capp-ELF-a Magic!

Is there anything more magical than an Elf quest? Hundreds of harmony-lovers learned the answer to this question while helping our YHC elves re-discover the magic of Christmas.  The cookies were sugary, the music was festive and everyone left with a song in their heart to last all season long!

 

 

What were people saying about our A Capp-ELF-a show?

“I enjoyed every minute.  The ‘Dixieland Jazz Quartet’ was excellent as well.   I thoroughly enjoyed the entire evening. Great job! I will be attending next year’s YHC Christmas Show. ’ Walter

YHC Performs with UCC

We love singing with our brothers in harmony - The Upper Canada Chordsmen Chorus!

You would think with two a cappella choruses residing is such close proximity to each other that the men and women's choruses would sing together all the time.  Sadly this is not the case as coordinating over 100 individuals for rehearsal is trickier than you'd imagine.  Which is why we were so excited that the stars lined up and gave us the chance to perform with our brothers in harmony at the Newmarket Music in the Park event.  In addition to learning a brand new song arranged in 8 parts (four for us ladies, four for the men), we also had the chance to show off some fun choreo moves as well.  How much fun is that?! :)
