Bluenose Belles, Citadel Chimes, ScotianAires 1987 – 2020
Although some records had dated Carolyn with Harmony, Incorporated (HI) from the year 2000, we
know she was singing barbershop long before that date. Originally with the Bluenose Belles, which
began as a Sweet Adelines chorus, Carolyn spent some time with the ScotianAires before leaving the
area, and then joined the Citadel Chimes in the year 2000 when she returned. Eventually the
ScotianAires became the only HI chapter in the Halifax/Dartmouth area and Carolyn was a longtime
member of the bass section.
Whatever part of Nova Scotia she landed in for home and career, co-workers, friends in the church and
the community, and especially her family, all experienced Carolyn's love and positivity. Carolyn
cherished singing with the chorus and her beautiful smile was sure to improve your day when you joined
her at rehearsal. She had a great sense of fun and if you were lucky enough to travel with her to a
performance, or even better, room with her at a competition, there would be plenty of laughter!
A loyal friend, Carolyn always supported her chorus members in the many small ways that count so
much. She reached out, she welcomed, she provided a listening ear and she offered that encouraging
comment, praise or consolation exactly when you needed it!
