Who are the toronto accolades?

Founded in 1968, Toronto Accolades is an all-female a cappella choral group singing four-part harmony in the barbershop style. We are members of Harmony, Inc., an international organization promoting friendship and personal growth through music and music education. Our repertoire includes a variety of music, both old and new, fast and slow. We put on shows, compete at Harmony, Inc. annual contests, and perform within the community.

The chorus’s 50th anniversary.

On Saturday, September 22, 2018, the Toronto Accolades celebrated its 50th anniversary in Harmony, Inc. by inviting all its former members and its friends from other choruses to a party.  At least 50 former members came back to celebrate with us and re-connect with people they hadn’t seen for many years, including Joan Chapman and Mary Jo McInerney, both founding members of the Accolades 50 years ago. There was an abundance of food, fun and fellowship.  Our thanks to all who came out to help us celebrate.
