Young, female fans of the Pitch Perfect movies might want to sign up for an a cappella harmony learning session this fall.
The Hearts of Harmony Chorus will be hosting a Nov. 16 workshop to introduce young women from 10 to 25 years old to barbershop harmonics.
The $40 all-day session will be held at the Church of Christ in Davenport in Red Deer. It will feature clinician Patti Thorpe from Langley, B.C., a section leader for the Westcoast Harmony Chorus. Thorpe was the Sweet Adelines Music Educator of the Year in 2016, and co-ordinates the Young Women in Harmony group for Western Canada.
Lunch, dinner and snacks will be provided. Once participants pre-register for the workshop, they will receive pdf sheet music and audio tracks for the two songs that will be workshopped: Count on Me and Shallow. Participants will be asked to learn the music before the session.
The two songs will be presented that evening at a concert that also includes the Hearts of Harmony Chorus and special guests. Members of the public will be admitted by donation.
Please register for the workshop by early October. More information is available at YWIH@heartsofharmony.ca, or you can call Cathy at 403-350-7154.
