Harmony Mountain Singers: An auditioned adult SATB roots/pop/folk choir in North Vancouver
Harmony Mountain Singers is a perfect combination of musical challenge, fun and laughs. Our music draws on the worlds of pop, folk and bluegrass (with the occasional gospel and world music song thrown in). We are an auditioned SATB choir that meets every Tuesday in North Vancouver. We perform at least two concerts a year and collaborate with wonderful local roots musicians. HMS is a very welcoming and social group that creates a joyful and relaxed environment for people who love to sing!
Karla has been directing the choir for 10 years- over that time the choir has traveled to Havana, Cuba and Asheville, North Carolina and had countless wonderful parties! We regularly work with wonderful workshop leaders and musicians. This year we are thrilled to be collaborating with David Francey and Coco Love Alcorn!
Harmony Mountain Singers is for singers who are:
•committed, dedicated, open, fun and curious
•looking for a unique and wholehearted choral experience
•have previous singing and/or choral experience
•have a good sense of rhythm and groove and a strong sense of pitch
•have some music reading abilities (not mandatory but helpful!)
•open to singing folk, pop, bluegrass and an occasional gospel or world music tune.
•love to come together in community and support other singers
•willing to sing without their music! (We perform everything off book)
