BALDWIN BLEND MIXED CHORUS

HARMONY RANCH 45th ANNIVERSARY

You may wonder why we would write an upbeat story about Harmony Ranch rather than dwell on Harmonize For Speech. The answer is obvious to us. Harmony Ranch members have always been very strong supporters of the Harmonize For Speech Fund, and for this, a very sincere “Thank You” for your contributions.

For some members of Harmony Ranch Recreation Club, it seems like only yesterday that this campground for barbershoppers began! 1973, a very good year. Forty-five years later we have mature trees, acres of grass to run and play on, and friends to sing with! Currently there are nine available lots out of the 115 lot total. This is an opportunity for a barbershop family to find a very fine summer place.

There is a considerable list of fun activities planned for our anniversary year. As the photo above indicates, a great show was presented for the Victoria Day weekend, featuring Harmony Ranch’s world famous Baldwin Blend Mixed Chorus (4th place medalists in Munich in April), the Black River Chorus and many quartets. Much later in the season on September 1st, Harmony Ranch’s Black River Chorus will feature yet another barbershop show in our refurbished heritage barn. Harmony Ranch is looking forward to welcoming Ontario District barbershop members as they gather for the Ontario Quartet Event on August 11th. Ontario District’s Senior Chorus. the Maple Leaf Chord Company, has a rehearsal planned of Sunday, July 22nd. Many other family orientated events are planned throughout our 45th Anniversary year!

Barbershoppers and their families are always welcome to come visit and explore the park. Take a moment and visit their website at www.campandsing.com
