Retake began as Take Note in 1999, took a few years off starting in 2004, and regrouped in 2013 to sing a few songs for old times sake. The old times are still going on!
Raye Trainor is the Tenor and is a retired Dental Hygienist; Anne Crosby is the Baritone and a retired dental administrator; Sherry McGuigan is the Bass and a retired Registered Nurse; and, Joanne Ings is the Lead and a retired non-profit Manager.
Based in Charlottetown PEI, Retake is a registered quartet of Harmony Incorporated, a North American women’s barbershop organization. The quartet competes in regional and international quartet competitions and a long time ago, won the Harmony International award for Top Scoring Novice Quartet in 2000!
With a varied song list, the quartet loves to perform songs from rock and roll to broadway musicals. Birthday greetings, singing Valentine’s, community concerts, weddings and special events are a few of the many gigs over the years. The quartet has also appeared as guest artist with the Caledonian Scottish Fiddle Orchestra of Nova Scotia on a number of occasions.
