2018 was quite a year for Sheffield Harmony with the group achieving a bronze medal in a top international competition hosted by the Spanish Association of Barbershop Singers.

The group also celebrated its 40th birthday and welcomed new Chorus Director, Rosalind Kipps who has a proven track record in directing, coaching and performing with some of the most successful four-part harmony choruses and quartets in the country. 

The group is hoping to start the new year with a bang by attracting new members.
