Many members find their own personal development a thrill, and their self-confidence grows as they learn singing and skills they may never have known before.

Why would I want to join?

Singing, friendship and good times are the reasons our members join and stay with the organization. We sing a combination of upbeat songs and ballads, a refreshing alternative to classical music. If you are, or have been, a member of a choir, vocal performing group or theatrical production, Ontario Heartland Chorus will be a lively and energetic experience for you. Sweet Adelines choruses and quartets right around the world perform four-part a cappella harmony, barbershop style. This style of music lends itself to songs from any era - today's ballads, popular show tunes, even jazz. If you ask our members, they'll tell you that singing this style of music is a high like nothing they've ever experienced before. It's a buzz!
