Newfound Sound was formed in 1985 with just twelve members. It received charter status from its international parent organization, Harmony Inc. (www.harmonyinc.org) in 1988 in Halifax, Nova Scotia, and joined the other chapters in Atlantic Canada to officially become part of Area 1 (www.harmonyarea1.ca). Today, Newfound Sound enjoys a strong membership of 20-30 active members on the risers each week. Teaching and training in barbershop harmony techniques are fundamentals of the group. Strong leadership by the Director, Elaine Galloway, along with support from the music team and all members of the chorus, provides a fun and friendly singing environment for women of all ages and backgrounds. Performances range from regular participation in the annual Atlantic Area 1 competition and convention (AC&C) and the international convention for Harmony, Inc. (IC&C), as well as other local events such as Christmas at Commissariat House. We also perform for conferences and other events with a very entertaining repertoire. Our group is very proud of the many awards that we have received over the years. Performances to support charity events, such as Sing for Care (www.singforcare.ca) and many others are commitments of great importance to us. We love to give back to the community and we often entertain patients and residents in health care facilities and seniors' homes. If you enjoy singing, helping your community, and making new friends, then why not consider becoming a member of Newfound Sound.
