Cutting good form with the barbershop chorus
Nelson’s Heritage Harmony Barbershop Chorus closed out a very successful 2010 with a Christmas blast, as they performed festive carols for many groups around the region, including their annual holiday sing-outs for Jubilee Manor, Mountain Lakes, Kiwanis, and more.
The chorus was the featured singing act again at the CBC Christmas Carol fundraiser for the Food Cupboard. Plus, their live recorded version of Elton John’s Can You Feel the Love Tonight was featured on Stephen Lewis’ recent Grans-to-Grans fundraising CD, while the group performed live at their benefit dinner.
Other 2010 highlights were singing O Canada for Nelson’s Canada Day festivities, performing at Trail’s Silver City Days, and rocking Baker St. and Ward with smooth singing sounds during the Road Kings’ annual September cruise.
Membership in the barbershop chorus has nearly doubled in the past year, and the added membership is leading the group to enter an official competition for the first time in their multi-decade existence, at the divisional gatherings this spring in Washington.
Filled with a good mixture of returning veterans, and promising rookies, the chorus is coming together like never before.
The HHBC is always welcoming new singers for their regular Monday practices in Nelson from 7-9:30 p.m., where learning, fun, and good camaraderie rule the day.
