A new chapter….
It’s now 10 years since the original idea for Harmony Federation was hatched at the IABS convention of 2011. We’ve been through a lot since then including securing the services of the renowned force of nature - Linda Corcoran as our Director in August 2015. This represented a huge step forward for us as a chorus.
We quickly acquired our trademark green shirts and posher uniforms and were going from strength to strength each year that passes and then in early 2020 like the rest of the world chorus singing (and lots of other activities) ground to a stop.
So how to continue and keep the group together when we couldn’t get together for a sing. Enter Zoom into our lives and Linda’s energy organising line rehearsals that kept us going and allowed us to learn some new repertoire at the same time.
Like the version of Ireland’s Call we recorded and dedicated to all Frontline workers or our version of Stray Cat Strut.
Luckily, we survived the various lockdowns and the complete absence of live group singing and on 11th September 2021 we had our first in person rehearsal (outdoors) since February 2020. It was amazing to see how the group just gelled together again after such a long absence and just picked up the conversation where we left off!!
This is a testament to Linda, the bond between the members and the pride we feel in being part of Harmony Federation.
We are very much looking forward to seeing how this new chapter pans out and are open to singers who would like to join us on this exciting journey. If you would like to join just click here to get the details.
