Crosstown Harmony members are busy women who come in all shapes and sizes, all ages, and all walks of life. And we are more than just a hobby. We rehearse weekly all year long to perform in the most professional way possible. Our choreography and costumes, as well as our off-paper 4-part a capella singing, set us apart from the average singing group. We could be called an adult woman's "swing choir." The friendship within the chorus, to say nothing of the wonderful barbershop chords we produce, create the caring and sharing that give us the emotional boost to "sing our hearts out." Besides performing our own shows and for local organizations, we compete seriously to win in our field and to keep our craft in the highest working order. Why not visit us and try your hand at this fun and challenging hobby?
In addition to sharing our music with others, another great passion of ours is learning more about the art of acapella singing. Vocal instruction is a regular part of chorus rehearsals, and a very important component of the chorus experience. A couple of times a year, we will get coaching from a visiting master in the art of barbershop, where we learn many fabulous tricks of the trade. And at least once a year, we also hold a weekend retreat for our members for a more intensive educational experience that helps to raise our level of singing individually as well as chorus-wide.
CompetitionIn the spring of every year,
QuartetsMost choruses have a number of members who form their own vocal quartets in addition to singing with the chorus. Crosstown currently is home to a number of wonderful quartets, and we are very proud of them! Click here to see our quartet section to learn more about them.
