As part of our Singing Valentines outreach, hundreds of people from around the globe received personalized Valentine messages from loved ones, and were thrilled to listen to our chorus sing Heart of My Heart.
Almost sixty chorus members submitted audio tapes to Jordan Travis, recorded individually. Then, dressed for the occasion, we followed up with individual video tapes, recorded to the same track. Jordan and his tech support people synchronized the submissions into one harmonic master video for the Valentine greetings. Chorus manager Vic Linka organized and managed the ordering process, including a range of payment options for people requesting Valentines. Bob Roach worked his tech magic to produce and post each individual greeting, including the personalized messages.
Without the hours of work from Jordan, Vic, and Bob, this Valentine outreach would not have been so successful. Each of the chorus members who submitted tapes, and all who promoted the outreach to families and friends, also contributed to the success. It was a joy for all of us, as singers, to share our passion for music and our love for our families, friends, and audiences through this Singing Valentines outreach.

Harbourtown Sound presented a virtual 2020 Christmas show, Home for the Holidays, which ran on YouTube from 11 – 31 December 2020, and which was viewed more than 1650 times. Many of those who enjoyed the show donated to the chorus, and their generosity enabled us to contribute $1100.00 to two local community charities---the CHCH TV Christmas Toy Drive and the 541 Eatery & Exchange.
Harbourtown Sound is proud to support local charities in our service to community and charitable organizations, including senior citizens and school children, in the greater Halton-Hamilton region.

Wed, 19 Dec 2018
A small group of Harbourtown Sound members performed alongside some wonderful students from Woodview Learning Centre this afternoon as part of their holiday concert. The homemade poster and card were so very touching, but not as amazing as watching the students faces, as they sang and jingled along!

Harbourtown Sound - 2018 Christmas Show
The Grinch hated Christmas! The whole Christmas season! Now, please don't ask why. No one quite knows the reason.
At our annual Christmas show on 24/25 November, Little Cindy Lou and all the Whos of Whoville came to life in a humourous rendition of a favourite Christmas tale, filling the air with joyful and heartwarming music for all who attended.
The horrible, awful Grinch, whose heart was said to be two sizes too small, tried to steal Christmas because he hated everything about it. But, thanks to the intervention of Cindy-Lou, the Grinch discovered the true meaning of Christmas as his heart swelled back to normal size.
In the second half of the show, the men of the chorus, dressed smartly in their formal wear, entertained the audience with several traditional songs of the season.
In conjunction with Rotary International and corporate sponsors, the Sunday matinee show added to the money raised over the past two years for Rotary’s End Polio Now campaign to more than $165,000.
