We are delighted to welcome The West Island Sweet Adelines, a choral group dedicated to the promotion of women’s barbershop harmony through education and quality performance. Together its members aspire to achieve musical excellence while creating a spirit of unity, enthusiasm and fun, in which each individual can realize her greatest potential within the organization.
Wondering about barbershop, well, it’s a unique four-part close harmony style, most often performed a cappella, based on performance practices common in the American south during the late 1800s and early 1900s. Today, the word ‘barbershop ‘ covers many different musical forms and repertoire but still adheres to key characteristics of harmony, structure and style. The Sweet Adelines are dedicated to the preservation and promotion of this wonderful art form.

After the performance, instead of meeting for coffee at Van Houtte as we usually do, DAVIDsTEA will be on hand in the theatre, offering free cups of their delicious teas. Stay awhile and feel free to go up and talk to the singers who will be happy to share their musical stories with you. The McCord is extending our time in the theatre to 3.30 just for this event.
DAVIDsTEA (or “David’s Tea” as we’re often searched) is a premium tea retailer devoted to uncompromising customer service and the proliferation of the world’s finest teas.
The latest count puts us past 150 different teas, with more popping up all the time whenever we find something new. We are here to bring the best teas from all over the world into your life, one delicious cup at a time.
