Barbershoppers have at least one thing in common. We all enJOY! making music together.
enJOY! formed in December of 2016 when two Harmony Queens, a Singing Judge, and a lyric mezzo-soprano decided to join forces. They only sang together a handful of times before Jane (their snowbird) headed down south for the winter, but that was all it took for them to know that the fit was “just right.” enJOY! placed 3rd at the Area 1 Contest and Convention in June of 2017, and they are hard at work getting ready to leave their mark on the international contest stage in Halifax, this November.

Four years ago, Marion, Adele, Mary and Cathy discovered that singing together in close harmony was a real pick-me-up. Since then, their Tonic! has been performing for a variety of audiences throughout Atlantic Canada, as well as competing both regionally and internationally.
Tonic! has proudly represented Harmony Inc’s Area 1 region as Quartet Champions in 2015, 2016 and 2017, winning the most improved quartet award twice. Tonic! recently attended Harmony University in Nashville in anticipation of putting their best foot forward at the International Convention and Contest at home in Halifax this November.
