Due to the global COVID-19 pandemic, A Cappella Quinte will be suspending all rehearsals effective immediately.
Our executive has also made the decision to cancel our annual Spring Concert, which was scheduled for April 25th.

|It is with sad regret that we cancel our annual show scheduled for Saturday, April 25th. We were looking forward to singing for the audiences we love, and to the joy of performing with our fellow a cappella barbershop singers.|
But, your health and well-being and that of our members and guest performers are of utmost importance. So, we’re now looking forward to singing for you in the not-to-far-distant future.
Be sure to catch our show when we can all get back together again. We’ll announce the time and date when things are getting back to normal.
And, we’d like to extend a warm welcome to any men out there who would like to give singing a try. You don’t have to be an accomplished singer, or even be able to read music. Keep an eye out for when we begin our weekly practices again on Tuesday evenings at Maranatha Church.
A Cappella Quinte are pleased to announce that Ripple Effect will be joining us for Spring into Harmony
Ripple Effect is comprised of 4 musicians dedicated to the art of vocal performance hailing from London and Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The quartet joined forces in January of 2017 in hopes of becoming the first mixed barbershop quartet to compete and win on the Ontario District stage. A feat they are proud and humbled to have done.
Since then they have shared in some remarkable experiences; Winning their second Ontario District Championship title in 2018. Perhaps the most life changing experience was when they earned the right to represent Canada at the World Mixed Barbershop Championship held in Germany in April of 2018, where they managed to bring home the bronze medal for Canada.
With an obvious love of the barbershop style, they also sing a cappella music from other genres including; choral, pop, gospel, madrigals and the list goes on. At the end of the day they hope the sounds they create for the next 20 mins or the next 20 years resonate and have an impact on those who share their musical space.
That, is the Ripple Effect.
A Cappella Quinte are pleased to announce that Yonge Guns will be joining us for Spring into Harmony
Music is an ever-changing ocean of currents, and in the corner where barbershop quartet music resides, Yonge Guns is trailblazing and exploring the frontiers. Comprised of Greg, Reuven, Jonah, and Chris, who are four accomplished musicians from various backgrounds, Yonge Guns delivers a stellar and reliable a cappella experience. They specialize in barbershop quartet music, but this isn’t your grandpa’s barbershop; their style and flair is anything but kitschy.
Yonge Guns competes in the Barbershop Harmony Society’s quartet contests – these contests are huge – competing internationally to represent Ontario and Canada, and it’s thanks to these contests that they can actually say they’re the best quartet in Ontario. They scored higher in Ontario than any quartet in decades, and are constantly working to improve.
But why believe some scores? Check out some of their best performances (both in and out of contest) on their YouTube page.
