Northern Blend Chorus
Northern Blend Chorus
Northern Blend is a Ladies Barbershop Chorus of Harmony, Inc. a non-profit International organization, whose purpose is to empower all women through education, friendship and a cappella singing in the barbershop style. We believe we have something special to offer any woman who is touched by the ringing chords of this unique brand of a cappella harmony.
The chorus is comprised of women who live in and around Watertown, in Northern New York. Its members come from all walks of life but are unified by their love of singing. The chapter chartered with Harmony, Inc. in 1985 and has consistently competed at both the Area and International levels of competition. Northern Blend WON the chorus contest at the 51st International Convention & Contest held in St. John, New Brunswick, Canada, making them them the 2010 International Chorus Champions! And then NBC won once again in Halifax, Nova Scotia making them the 2017 International Chorus Champions. Watch the video below of their winning performance!
