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.

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

40 Years and Going Strong!

It's our birthday! Jersey Harmony Chorus has been one of the regional choruses of Sweet Adelines International for 40 years.

We've enjoyed all the years of singing, performing, learning and commraderie. We are looking forward to many more great years.


 

Virtual Rehearsals Keep the Music Alive!

Even though we can't meet in person now due to COVID-19, we are still meeting weekly on Monday nights via Zoom to sing, dance, learn and socially connect.

 

We've practiced dance moves for Consider Yourself from Oliver, discussed the steps needed to create a virtual chorus for Girls Just Wanna Have Fun, learned some useful music theory concepts, and sung to background music. In addition, we've had a great time socially connecting and catching up.
