Like all singing groups, we have been severely restricted in what we can do. Ingenuity and Technology have come together at just the right time - our weekly 'meetings' continued on Zoom, and now we have been able to sing 'together' in our new rehearsal venue. We are becoming accustomed to being socially distanced and singing with masks, and we are still learning new songs. This may be the time to join us and fulfill your 'Diva' ambitions!
2020 and 2021 were not the best years for performances!
Thanks to Covid, it's now two years since our last show - 'A Christmas Choral'. Although we can't do any public performances at the moment, on Tuesday November 30th 2021 we held an online informal 'Friends and Family' event with many of the songs we performed at that show. We were thrilled to see how many people logged on to watch us, and sent lovely comments.
But it was weird to finish each song to silence instead of applause!

|Our 'Christmas Choral' Show was so much fun, and our Narrator Terry Welsh was fabulous!||Singing at the Kelowna Community Theatre to support this worthy cause was a highlight of our year!|
Our "Harmony Radio" show on October 9th 2018 was a great success! We owe a debt of gratitude to all the individuals and companies who donated goods and services to help us with this BC CANCER fundraiser - notably Harmony Honda, Yamas Greek Taverna, Summerhill Estate Winery, Urban Fare, Safeway and Save-on Foods - and others too numerous to mention. Thank you!
Anna Jacyszyn wrote this about our 'Singing Valentines' in her 'Artafact' column in the Kelowna Daily Courier - thanks, Anna! "Last year on Valentine's Day, I wanted to do something special for my husband, so I hired the White Sails A Cappella Chorus to visit him at the building site he was working on at Sunset Ranch to sing him a love song while his co-workers sat and watched on their lunch break. Yes, he was embarrassed and, yes, his friends chuckled at this kind of sentiment in such an unusual location, but we still talk about it, and I know for a fact that he was touched by the gesture. This year, I have to find another creative way to tell my man how much he means to me, but if you are looking for a special way to tell your partner, then I suggest booking your Valentine's choir by text or call at 250-717-7969, or email to [email protected]. It costs $35 a song, and arrives with a flower and a card, and of course, a lasting memory of a red-faced loved one getting singled out and sung to on a very special day!"
