Sea Belles’ Chorus Shares Holiday Harmonies and Good Cheer

 Saint John, NB- December 27, 2016–  Sea Belles, Saint John’s only ladies A Cappella Chorus, have had a busy few months sharing their Holiday Harmonies and good cheer with local nursing homes, senior’s apartments, malls, the public and local charities.

Each year the chorus donates a portion of fund raising profits and performances to two local charities. The attached photo shows Brenda Smith, Sea Belles’ Charity Coordinator, presenting cheques for the combined amount of $1000 to Phyliss Buchacan of Romero House and Lorraine Marshall, Administrative Asistant for Sophia Recovery Center. In addition to these financial donations, Sea Belles also collected mitts, hats, scarves for Romero House patrons at their annual Christmas party.

Sea Belles is grateful for the continued support of  the Saint John and surrounding communities to their barbershop style of a cappella music.
