Men of the Harvest is a gospel singing group that enjoys sharing the male voice in 4 part harmony.Formed in January,2014 under the direction of Bonnie LaFrance,the group has performed for fundraisers at Island Churches and Halls across PEI, over 90 performances during the past 5 years.
Members are from various communities across PEI…..from West Prince to the Charlottetown area.The group has produced two CD’s with the proceeds from sales being donated to various island charities. Bonnie LaFrance retired in Dec 2018, the group continues under the direction of Garth Mackey a Kensington native.
Based in Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, and under the direction of Carolyn Prime, Island A Cappella is the Island’s only all women’s chorus specializing in singing four-part a cappella harmony in the barbershop style. We are proud members of Harmony, Inc., an international, non-profit organization created to empower women through education, friendship and – of course – a cappella singing!
Originally the Abegweit Chimes, we rebranded to Island A Cappella in 2013 as a cappella singing began to explode in popularity around the world – and we’ve been growing ever since! Whether it’s standards from musical theatre, jazz or big band eras or new arrangements of contemporary music, we love singing the close-knit harmonies of barbershop – not to mention the ability to really bring a song to life by performing without having our printed sheet music in our hands.
Our chorus is a diverse and multi-generational group of fun-loving, energetic women and we’re always looking for new members to join us on the risers. We LOVE to sing and perform, whether it’s at festivals and events across the Island, at local manors or churches, or just at our weekly rehearsals. And yes, we sing competitively too, as a part of our membership in Harmony, Inc.
