On Friday, March 24th, FourTune Quartet entertained guests at the 50's JukeBox Jam. Algonquin College Event Management Students paired up with the Children's Wish Foundation to grant a wish for a child diagnosed with a life-threatening condition. The 50s Jukebox Jam was a successful fundraiser and included a fun evening of classic 50's games, silent auction, and a diner-style dinner, not to mention the dulcet tones of a Barbershop Quartet.

Members of the chorus made their annual pilgrimage to Camp Smitty, a summer camp run by the Boys & Girls Club of Ottawa. After two days of construction and yard work, singing O Canada for Olympian Melissa Bishop at her Eganville homecoming parade, and much laughter, song, bonfires, and great food, these weary barbershoppers have returned home for a rest.

Thank you also and congrats to all our guest men and women singers, and a big shout-out to the Béatrice-Desloges Jazz Band lead by the talented Richard Hardy!
Wishing you and your loved ones a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
A small contingent of the Chorus performed in the ByWard on Saturday at the invitation of the ByWard Market Business Association. It was a beautiful sunny day and we were pleased to see so many happy shoppers out and and about, especially those who stopped by to take in a song or two. Many thanks to the generous donations from passers-by!
We had a great turnout for our first Christmas Show Rehearsal. 100 men & women on the risers! What a fantastic sound! The group consisted of approximately 35 women and 65 men, including 8 couples! Looking for a fun night out with your partner? Drop by next Monday for more fun. See our "Sing on our Christmas Show" page for details.
The Chorus is packing up preaparing to head to Belleville for the 2015 Ontario District Fall Convention. On Saturday, at about 12:20pm, we will be taking to the stage. We have 2 really great songs to sing at this annual contest and about 50 excited guys who have spent months learning the songs, learning the choreo moves, perfecting the key changes, and getting ready to show our fellow barbershoppers what the Capital City Chorus is all about!
Home Free was a big hit with our audience at our Show on Saturday with their enjoyable, toe-tapping harmonies and chest-rumbling bass and beats! Thanks to the vocal band for including our show on their "Don't if Feel Good" tour. A huge thanks to our amazing audiences for coming to the show and giving both the Chorus and Home Free a warm and enthusiastic welcome to the stage. Thanks also to the Algonquin Common Theatre crews for providing a great venue and show support. A special thanks to our volunteers who supported the Chorus and the Band, keeping us fed, happy, and on schedule.
