Harmony Awareness Month is sponsored annually by Harmony, Inc., an international organization of female a cappella singers specializing in the barbershop harmony style, to raise awareness of barbershop harmony, the women who celebrate and preserve the genre, and the contributions that Harmony, Inc. members make to their local communities throughout the United States and Canada.

“Annually, we celebrate a cappella singing and the organization that has brought so much joy to Sea Belles chorus and such a feeling of accomplishment in our members’ lives,” says Susan Ingraham chapter president. “Sea Belles A Cappella chorus hosts these community events to commemorate 2018 Harmony Awareness. Photos from this year’s events will be included in a promotional video created for Harmony, Inc to be shown internationally to promote four part a cappella harmony, local choruses and communities. We’d love to have Sea Belles and our fabulous Saint John community included!”
