HARMONY welcomes children of all ages and experience levels, all year long. No prior musical experience is necessary. Prospective singers and their families are encouraged to attend a HARMONY rehearsal to see how we work together. If your child would like to join HARMONY, please plan to attend a rehearsal so he or she can have an opportunity to sing with the chorus, as well as participate in a low-key, one-on-one audition with HARMONY’s music director. For more information on auditioning with HARMONY, click here.
What Children Learn from HARMONY
HARMONY singers learn basic music theory and reading skills; phrasing; breathing exercises; correct posture; rhythms; how to perform expressively; how to sing in many different languages; how to blend vocally into a chorus; how to sing in a small group and/or a solo setting; and how to sing in two-, three- and four-part harmony.
As a HARMONY singer, your child will learn teamwork and tolerance as he or she rehearses, performs and interacts with other HARMONY children. HARMONY singers are diverse in race, culture, and faith, and bring with many interests, talents and abilities to our group.
Our singers have had the opportunity to perform before world leaders, city leaders, organizations that help other children, and charities that make a positive difference in our world. As a HARMONY singer, your child will develop poise and stage presence, confidence, self–assurance, and improved focus and concentration from these experiences.
HARMONY is a group that has the remarkable ability to create an international spirit of community through song. It is encouraging to see young people from diverse backgrounds celebrating their differences and working together toward a common goal.~ Former President Jimmy Carter
