Newfound Sound Fundraising Auction July 1-18, 2024

Newfound Sound is Newfoundland and Labrador’s only women’s barbershop harmony chorus. Our chorus was founded in 1985 and was established as an official chartered chapter of Harmony Incorporated International in 1988.  Our mission is empowerment for all women through education, friendship and a cappella singing and support women of all ages and backgrounds.  Under the energetic and creative direction of Dr. Phil Roberts, we are 25 women who come together every week to blend song with friendship and create a wonderful space for learning and fine tuning our performance craft. Our repertoire covers many genres such as traditional, pop and inspirational.

Newfound Sound has won numerous awards and trophies in barbershop competitions. We are the only barbershop chorus to compete in the Kiwanis Music Festival Group Rose Bowl - placing second and receiving the George Matheson Trophy.  We are grateful to have been involved in many wonderful fundraisers - raising money for cancer support programs such as Pink Days in Bloom, Daffodil Place and Sing for Care. We have entertained for the Children's Wish Foundation and the Eating Disorder Foundation Annual Gala. Each year, we look forward to singing carols at the Commissariat House old fashioned Christmas. We have shared our song with the Lieutenant Governor at Government House and even entertained the Queen during one of her visits to our province.  

We have competed in Atlantic and International women's barbershop contests. The Atlantic contest and convention takes place annually in Sackville New Brunswick.  The purpose of this fundraiser is to help alleviate the costs associated such as flights, car rentals, meals and accommodations.  Additionally, we incur costs to bring in professional performance and musicality coaches in preparation for this contest.  Your support of Newfound Sound Barbershop Chorus is greatly appreciated!
