Announcing Harbourtown Sound's Christmas Shows

Saturday, November 23, 2019 - 2:00pm & 7:30pm

Harbourtown Sound presents “North Pole’s Got Talent”, a Christmas Musical Show suitable for adults and children alike.  Performances at the Burlington Performing Arts Centre, 440 Locust St, Burlington.

Hamilton’s gold medal-winning Harbourtown Sound men’s chorus will present its annual Christmas show--- North Pole’s Got Talent---at the Burlington Performing Arts Centre on Saturday, 23 November.

The first half of this year’s show will feature the many talents of several performers as they vie to replace Santa Claus at the North Pole. Jack Frost, Frosty the Snowman, Ebenezer Scrooge, the Grinch, and even Kermit the Frog will strut their stuff for the panel of judges.

The second half of the programme will showcase the seventy-five men of the chorus filling the theatre with their joyful and heartwarming music of the season.

The special guest this year is Melissa-Marie Shriner, well known for her performances in recitals and concerts throughout southern Ontario and upstate New York. She has performed with the Avanti Chamber Singers, as a guest soloist with Choralis Camerata, with The Melissa-Marie Shriner Jazz Trio, and as the featured artist at the TD Niagara Jazz Festival. Her jazz endeavours include a recording, A Christmas Love Song, a throw-back to the classic holiday recordings of the 1940's and 50's.

There will also be loads of local quartets on stage to fill up your musical Christmas stockings.

The matinee performance will start at 2:00 pm. An evening performance will follow at 7:30 pm. Tickets are still available from the BPAC box office.

Adults: $35, Seniors: $30, Under 18: $20.  Tickets available from any chorus member or online at the BPAC website: or by calling 905-681-6000.


Hamilton Wins Ontario district men's chorus competition

Hamilton's celebrated Harbourtown Sound men’s chorus won Gold at the 2019 Ontario district convention of the international Barbershop Harmony Society in Brantford, Ontario on 19 October.

The win entitles our chorus to represent Ontario at the international championship to be held in Los Angeles in July 2020. This is the fifth time Harbourtown Sound has won the right to represent our district at the Worlds.

Every chorus member offers a huge thank you to our family and friends for your tremendous support.


In Loving Memory of Sandy Bell

August 23, 1946 - August 21, 2019
The entire Harbourtown Sound family and all our friends were saddened to hear of the untimely death of our long-time president, Sandy Bell. He passed away at home on Wednesday, 21 August 2019.

Since becoming a member of the chorus in 2005, the thirty-eighth person to join us on the risers, Sandy has been an esteemed and indispensable part of the life of Harbourtown Sound. Nothing we can say here will truly reflect the enormous contributions he made to our journey together.

Sandy became president of the chorus in 2012, and served continuously from then until his passing. So effective was he in this role, and so valued by his brothers in harmony, we took to greeting him with “Four more years!” when we encountered him. Sandy would respond with a sly grin and a shake of his head, but he never failed to step up and serve.
