Canadian Showtime Chorus


Julie Sykes is an experienced vocal performer with a passion for barbershop harmony. She has been a member of Canadian Showtime Chorus since 2012 and has taken on various musical roles within the chorus over the years, including her recent appointment as Director. 

Julie's love of barbershop began over 15 years ago when she joined the Bluewater Chorus in Owen Sound, Ontario. Since then, she has been dedicated to perfecting her craft and sharing her talents with others.  

Julie is a graduate from the vocal program at Canterbury Arts High School in Ottawa and, in 2004, she completed her grade 9 vocal examination with the Royal Conservatory of Music. In 2018, Julie was a co-recipient of Region 16’s Assistant Director Award. 

In addition to her work with Canadian Showtime Chorus, Julie sings Tenor with No Compromise quartet. In the spring of 2023, the quartet competed at the regional level, placing third and winning the award for Most Improved Quartet. 

When she's not making music, Julie is a proud dog mom to Georgie, her adorable Cavalier Spaniel, and enjoys training for agility.
