Northern Blend Chorus to Perform at Better Festival June 21

Northern Blend Chorus, a ladies a cappella singing group based out of Watertown, N.Y., has confirmed their participation in Better Festival Saturday, June 21, at Better Farm in Redwood.

The women of Northern Blend Chorus specialize in the barbershop style. They have placed in the top five internationally since 2000, and are known for their "mighty sound" for such a small group. They won top honors in Harmony Inc. in 2010 as International Chorus Champions. They were silver medalists for the 2012-2013 year, and were recently awarded the Area 3 Championship in Palmyra, NY with a score of 946 (Avg. 78.8!).
The singing group will perform at 4 p.m. at the Better Festival, an annual open house, fundraiser, and alumni weekend for Better Farm and betterArts slated from 12-8 p.m. Saturday, June 21, 2014. All money raised at the annual music, sustainability, and arts festival will directly fund art- and sustainability-related community outreach initiatives in and around Redwood.

Northern Blend Chorus boasts between 30-35 members and they are an incredibly talented group of ladies from all walks of life. They meet to rehearse every Monday evening at the All Souls Church on outer Gotham St. in Watertown, NY, and are always welcoming guests to come sing with them and experience their fun and exciting style of singing!

Members of that group this summer are helping to host an a cappella workshop for people 23 and younger:
