Performing 2 Oliver Songs for Evaluation

Most years, our chorus attends a regional competition in Albany, NY where all the Sweet Adelines Region 15 choruses and quartets gather to perform and be evaluated by a group of accomplished judges. It is an amazing experience listening to so many talented singers and to perform in front of an always appreciative audience.
 

This year, however, our chorus opted to perform remotely and send a video of our performance to the judges for evaluation. The two songs we sang were from Oliver - Consider Yourself and As Long as He Needs Me.

We were happy with the feedback from the judges because we received high marks for a number of things we spent a lot of time practicing. It was nice that what we practiced actually translated into our performance and was recognized by the judges. We also received a number of tips to help us to improve going forward.

 

A Choral Coaching Intensive with Scott Brannon

Every year we schedule time with an outside coach who has years of experience coaching singers to excel at barbershop and 4-part harmony, a cappella music.  This year Jersey Harmony Chorus invited Scott Brannon to help us improve our skill.

Scott has 40+ years of barbershop experience. He is highly recognized as a director, quartet singer, and coach. It was wonderful having an outside perspective to help us improve our vocal quality and expression. He also created a supportive, fun learning environment for all who attended.

 

A Beautiful Day for a Strolling Gig

We were invited once again to sing at Peddler's Village during their Apple Festival. It was a beautiful, sunny, fall day. There were crowds of people milling around and stopping by to hear us sing. They were very enthusiastic. They sang along, clapped, and hooted. It was fun event.

Two New Additions to the Jersey Harmony Chorus Family!

We are excited to welcome two new members. Jessica Mena who  previously sung in other a cappella groups joined as a Tenor and Elizabeth Dicker who studied music and loves to sing joined as a Baritone. Both are from the Princeton - West Windsor, NJ area.

A Fun and Musical Way to
Wish Your Loved Ones Happy Birthday!

The pandemic got us thinking about how we
could still bring singing to others without meeting up in person. That's where the idea of doing a virtual Birthday Gram came from.

We are happy to announce that Jersey Harmony Chorus is now offering personalized, virtual Birthday Grams for sale.

You get to choose from 3 different formats - an audio recording, video recording, or an audio recording with a slideshow of your personal photos. Birthday Grams are a wonderful, personalized way to say "HAPPY BIRTHDAY" to people you love.

To learn more and to see some examples of what your Birthday Gram will look like, visit
