Seven years ago, Marion, Adele, Mary and Cathy discovered that singing together in close harmony was a real pick-me-up. Since then, their Tonic! has been performing for a variety of audiences throughout Atlantic Canada, as well as competing both regionally and internationally.  Recently, Mary announced plans to move back to Ontario and Mickey Melanson has moved into the tenor spot.

Tonic! has proudly represented Harmony Inc’s Area 1 region as Quartet Champions from 2015 through 2019, winning the most improved quartet award twice.  At the 2018 International Convention and Contest in Orlando, FL, Tonic! received fifth place medals as well as the “Image of Harmony Award” for service within the organization and the wider community, and the “Accord Award” for the most improved quartet.

Message from Tonic: "We've been having lots of fun meet-ups on Zoom while we're physically distancing, but we can’t wait to be together again in person to fully enjoy the harmony of our friendship and our music. We look forward to singing for you soon!"
