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 40 members.
The chorus has taken part in competitions in both the UK and in Spain to help us to continue to develop our musical skills.
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.
During 2020’s Coronavirus lockdown, we rehearsed online and put together a number of virtual performances including creating a virtual chorus video to support the Festival of Lights at St Luke’s Hospice.
We are now back to rehearsing and performing in person.
