Circle of Harmony is a dynamic a cappella chorus based in Oakville, Ontario, Canada. The chorus’ signature sound, musical variety, energetic choreography and expressive, passionate singing have earned them a reputation for professionalism in their many performances.
Under the direction of Master Director Barbara Hodge, Circle of Harmony is committed to musical excellence. Each year, the 60+ members raise the bar, setting new benchmarks whilst maintaining both a warm and fun atmosphere during rehearsals and performances.
Formed in 1998, Circle of Harmony puts a dynamic face on four-part harmony in the region. In addition to the traditional barbershop style, Circle of Harmony sings songs that span a wide range of genres, from standards to Broadway, gospel to popular songs. Audiences are captivated by Circle of Harmony’s unique performances and become hooked on this a cappella craft.
The chorus has captured the attention and hearts of ordinary women who love to sing and who have become dedicated members, some traveling 90 km to be a part of Circle of Harmony’s warm and caring spirit.
Mission statement: Circle of Harmony is a chorus of women, dedicated to learning and performing quality four-part harmony with a caring spirit that shows our love of singing.
Circle of Harmony competes annually in the Sweet Adelines International regional competition. In 2017, their vision, hard work and dedication resulted in a 2nd place ranking in Region 16 at the Regional Competition in Syracuse, New York.
Even more exciting – our regional score meant that we were offered one of only 10 coveted international wildcard invitations to the Sweet Adelines International in St. Louis, Missouri, in October 2018.
Circle of Harmony was delighted to represent Region 16 and are proud to announce that we placed 31st in the chorus semi-finals in our very first appearance at Internationals! Way to go chorus!
At our Regional competition in April 2019, we placed second in the mid-sized chorus division AA and third overall.
