The Niagara region has had a women’s a cappella chorus for over 50 years! The first Harmony Inc.
chorus in Niagara started in 1965, in the city of St Catharines under the name of The Tune Twisters. Twenty years later, in 1985,Harmony Niagara became the second Harmony chorus in the Region. In 1993, the two choruses amalgamated, dissolving their existing Harmony charters and establishing a fresh Harmony chorus, under the name of Pride of Niagara. In 2008, the chorus changed its name to Sing Niagara. Fifty-two years of singing and service to the Niagara community is a significant accomplishment.
Incorporation as a non-profit organization in Ontario took place in 2005. The chorus has Bylaws and a Board of Directors whose purpose is to manage the direction of the chorus, and ensure compliance with the laws for non-profit organizations and the copyright laws governing the purchase and use of our music.
In the 50+years of its existence, the chorus has received numerous awards for its singing and community service, produced award winning quartets and wonderful directors. The photo depicts one of the many proud moments in our history. Under the direction of Linda Hilko, the chorus captured 1st place in the 1994 Harmony, Inc. International competition. The annual competition is a major focus for the chorus; however, the top priority has always been to achieve excellence in every performance for all of our audiences.
