Meet Our Director Tracey Larder

    

 

Tracey has been in love with music ever since she can remember. She is a graduate from McGill University in music with her major in composition. She plays several instruments and has performed in many different ensembles, small groups, orchestras, quartets and choirs. She accidentally bumped into the Barbershop world about 22 years ago, and quickly added it to the list of her many favourite genres of music. “I thought barbershop singing was twirly-moustached men in red and white pinstriped suits. What a surprise to find women singing it, and what a wonderful sound!!! 
 
Tracey has embraced 4-part harmony acappella to its fullest. She has arranged music for Acappella Sounds Chorus, other choirs and also quartets. With the chorus, she has used her creativity to envision large scale shows, as well as smaller concerts and community sing-outs. With this, she still finds time to sing in a sister chorus, Canadian Showtime Chorus in Ottawa and is currently the tenor of the quartet Continental Crush.
