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. Please browse through our website to find out more about us.



The Toronto Accolades is a diverse group of women who find joy in a cappella singing while supporting, challenging and inspiring each other, and enriching the life of our community. The funds we received from volunteering at Kennedy Road Charitable Gaming Association recently allowed us to significantly enrich the life of our community – literally! We were able to deliver generous financial support to three community agencies which do so much to support those in need: NeighbourLink North York, the Salvation Army, and North York Harvest Food Bank. Thank you Kennedy Road Charitable Gaming Association for helping us to fulfill our mission.

If you visit our "Latest News" page, you will see a photo of our new risers and our new Yamaha keyboard. These were also made possible thanks to funds received from volunteering at Rama Gaming House--Toronto East.

The End of May brought our annual Area 5 Contest and Convention, held at the Sheraton North Toronto at Hwy 7 and Hwy 404. After an evening watching the Quartet Competition, which included several mixed quartets this year, we were eager to compete in the Chorus Contest the following day.  Our chorus included four new members to the Accolades, one of whom was completely new to barbershop.  We were pleased that we were able to take what we had learned and rehearsed and deliver it on the contest stage.  Later that evening, we gathered in the Grand Ballroom for dinner and entertainment, glamorously dressed according to the evening's theme of  "A Night On The Red Carpet".
