|Harbourtown Sound Men’s Chorus|
Wins Gold at Ontario District Competition
HAMILTON, ON – 20 October 2019 – Hamilton’s premier a capella men’s chorus, Harbourtown Sound, has won Gold at the 2019 Ontario district convention of the international Barbershop Harmony Society. The convention took place in Brantford, Ontario from 18 – 20 October 2019.
The win entitles the chorus to represent Ontario at the BHS world championship competition, which will be held in Los Angeles, CA in July 2020.
This is the fifth time Harbourtown Sound has won the right to represent Ontario internationally. At our most recent competition, in Orlando, FL in 2018, we finished twenty-fourth in the world out of eight hundred choruses.
We will present our annual Christmas show, North Pole’s Got Talent, at the Burlington Performing Arts Centre on Saturday, 23 November, at 2:00 pm and 7:00 pm.
Thank you to all our families and friends for your wonderful support.
|Hard as it is to believe, 2019 marks the fifteenth year in which the men of Harbourtown Sound have been making music and making friends.|
You won’t want to miss our annual spring show to mark this grand anniversary. Once again, it will be at the Burlington Performing Arts Centre, and tickets may be requested from chorus members now.
Special guests are Rhythmfoot, a fiddle-playing, step-dancing family who will amaze everyone attending.
Tickets may be purchased from any chorus member.
