I wanted to thank you and the ladies for once again adding your vocal virtuosity to the Brockville Culture Days. I always enjoy the looks on people's faces when you start singing. At first they seem surprised and then they break out into big smiles. I was particularly busy this year so I was only able to catch you when you stopped at Buell St. The Thousand Islanders contribution is, as always, greatly appreciated. I am sure I will see you somewhere around the downtown the future and if not I'm sure I will hear you! Russ D.
Thank you for providing such heart-warming entertainment for the Grenville East Retired Teachers' Christmas meeting. The harmonized vocals, red scarves and sparkly corsages added to the beautiful smiles on your faces as you presented your program so joyfully. Singing rounds is always fun and you guided us with true expertise. The music, old and new, stirred memories of preparing for the annual school Christmas concert. Thanks so much for refreshing that special happiness of this season.
Through participation in the Christmas Voices program I fulfilled a promise to myself to return to singing after years of absence. I fell in love with the four part a cappella barbershop harmony! Through personal hurdles including the challenge of a previously damaged vocal apparatus, I persevered and joined the chorus full time. The members were an incredible support group. We have fun doing what we love - it's infectious!

Making vocal notes melt together in a beautiful chord is enrichment for my soul. Barbershop style music is where I find it. It's a wonderful craft and Brockville has a lovely chorus.
