Director
 
Anne Axworthy
 

Anne Axworthy was director for

nearly 30 years of Orpheus Choral Group, an outreach group of Orpheus Musical Theatrical Society, and she continued on seamlessly with those duties when we became the independent Voices in Harmony in September 2014. Anne not only directs our music, she also teaches our chorus singing techniques at

every practice so that we can bring the very best in sound and music to you our audience.

 

Anne also directs The Ladies of the

Day, a women’s barbershop chorus. She currently sings with Canadian Showtime Chorus (Sweet Adelines),

in the past sang for 35 years with the Capital Chordettes of Harmony, Inc. and for five years, with her husband Bill Wilson, directed the Ottawa Police Chorus.

  The Voices in Harmony logo portrays an innovative image of the group to its audience.


 The tulip symbolizes Ottawa, which is known for its Tulip Festival. The flower is also a representation of the beauty and harmony of nature which resembles the  qualities of the chorus.


 The colour red represents Canada and the passion the group demonstrates at each of their performances.


 The clef sign is embedded in the flower as a musical symbol. The white colour also adds some light to the logo and creates a visual point of interest.


 The mixture of two fonts helps to create a perfect combination between the classic typeface and a more personal handwriting touch.


 The font “Palatino Linotype“ is classy and contemporary at the same time. “Notera” font impresses a more casual and relaxed feeling for Voices.


 Voices in Harmony thanks Alicia Paloukas, creative director of Spire Design (spiredesign.ca) for her imaginative work in designing our logo.
