Sheffield Harmony is a chorus of extraordinary women who gather together to sing four part harmony in the barbershop style. We are part of Sweet Adelines International.
Sheffield Harmony was founded in 1978 in the dining room of our Treasurer, Joan. Since then, the chorus has gone from strength to strength and now we have 60 members!
The chorus competes at Sweet Adelines’ Region 31 contest each year, achieving a score of 555 and a bronze medal in Division AA (30-60 members) in 2016.
There have been many highlights away from the competition stage. We have featured on film, television and radio including Radio Sheffield’s ‘Good News Friday’ and appearing in 2014’s Pulp: A Film about Life, Death and Supermarkets. The chorus recorded a barbershop version of ‘Common People’ that features on the film’s soundtrack, and performed at the premiere at Sheffield City Hall! Watch here.
The chorus regularly performs at events for corporate and community organisations, at private celebrations, and at shows. You can find out when to next see us here.
We get together every Monday to rehearse and have fun. We’re always looking for new members to share the love of barbershop with!
Whether you’re an experienced singer, or if you’ve never sung outside of your own shower before, we’d love for you to come and try singing with us. It doesn’t matter where your range lies – in four part harmony there is a place for those who like to sing high, low or somewhere in between.
If you’ve never sung barbershop before, you might want to read a bit more about it here.
We usually rehearse on Monday nights at High Storrs School, Sheffield S11 7LH.
Due to Covid restrictions we’ve currently moved our rehearsals online so we meet virtually on Monday nights from 7:30-9pm on Zoom.
We can provide quality entertainment for your company sponsored event, church social, family reunion, community festivals, public or private parties, club events, or any other situation where musical entertainment is desired.
