Chordettes in the Community – 2017

December 10, 2017 – The Capital Chordettes bring 4-part Christmas harmony to Manotick!

A favorite part of the Holiday Season, for the Capital Chordettes, is the joy of singing Christmas Carols. Sounds of their harmony filled the beautiful Manotick United Church on Sunday afternoon under the capable direction of Carolyn Henderson. An enthusiastic audience enjoyed a song selection that included Mary’s Boy Child, Oh Come Oh Come Emanuele, sung partly in Latin, Marshmallow World, and Jingle Bells .

Holiday Harmony and Sweet A Cappella, groups of seven, got into the Christmas spirit performing Deck the Halls and Do You Hear What I Hear.

Featured that afternoon were quartets, Sounds Like Fun, with their hilarious rendition of You Ain’t Getting Diddly Squat and Group Therapy who brought down the house with the haunting beautiful Huron Carol.

‘Twas a beautiful way to get into the holiday spirit.
