SEASIDE A CAPPELLA WELCOMES PACIFIC EDGE
|What do you serve a visiting chorus from Sweet Adelines? More sweetness of course!|
Seaside A Cappella (SAC) treated Pacific Edge chorus to an afternoon dessert party on June 25 in one of Mahone Bay’s beautiful churches. Visiting from Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Pacific Edge was on a multistop tour of the Maritimes.
“This was an event that is nearly impossible to describe,” said SAC Director Judy Comeau. “It was just so full of warm sisterhood, wonderful singing, and yes, very good food. We just connected with them in so many ways. And, boy can they sing!!!”
Despite a somewhat imbalanced selection of voices on hand—“a double quartet with a bunch of leads”—SAC taught the visitors a song that the combined choruses sang together, and Pacific Edge did the same.
SAC greeters handed out little packets to the visitors with NS pins and a tartan heart, and everyone raved about the delicious rhubarb squares prepared by chorus members.
SUMMER SING 2022 A RESOUNDING SUCCESS
|Seaside A Cappella launched its annual Summer Sing program on June 29, with the tagline Do You Like to Sing? Apparently, the answer is a resounding “Yes!” Nearly 40 women attended the first night, and a dozen more are expected for Week 2.|
The program runs over seven Wednesdays. Women were invited via Facebook, the website, posters, and word of mouth to come out, learn and sing a song with the chorus, find out all about a cappella singing, meet new people, and… just have fun! There may even be a public performance to look forward to at the end of it all!
This is the fourth in-person Summer Sing program for Seaside A Cappella. The chorus held a virtual program during the last two years, and still managed to attract several women who like to sing.

Seaside A Cappella Honours Linda Brehaut
|Seaside A Cappella is very proud to have Linda Brehaut as an Honorary Member. A dual member with Valley Voices, Linda served as President and later as Past President of Seaside A Cappella since its inception. She was instrumental in laying the foundation and moving us through the gate to charter status in 2018. |
We first announced Linda's Honorary Membership at our 2020 AGM, however, we were not able to make a presentation at that time because of pandemic restrictions. However, on October 19, Music Director Judy Comeau and Past President Yvonne Rafuse were honoured to be able to meet with Linda in person to finally present her with a framed certificate. We were pleased that Deb Moreau of the Valley Voices accompanied Linda, as she too was a founding member of Seaside A Cappella.
