Harmony4Women Calls for Singers to Participate in the “Tis the Season” Community Benefit Concert

Harmony4Women announces an early registration for experienced and inexperienced singers who want to learn acappella harmony and participate in the 2016 Harmony4Women benefit concert. The schedule begins August 25 with the meet and greet Singers’ Kickoff Party at the home of Linda Gardner. Educational rehearsals begin Sept 15 from 5:45 to 8:00 pm and continue every Thursday until November 17 at the Bend Sr. Center. This year’s program, “Tis the Season”, will be performed twice on November 19, at Summit High School.

Begun in 2009, Harmony4Women is a non-auditioned women’s community chorus that performs once a year to benefit four non-profit organizations, Grandma’s House of Central Oregon, Soroptimist International of Bend, American Association of University Women – Bend Branch, and Bella Acappella Harmony Chorus. These organizations serve and educate local women and children. Throughout the year, these organizations collaborate to develop this educational benefit program and the net proceeds from the show that are divided equally between them.

Under the direction of Connie Norman, Harmony4Women, is a fun educational experience with well-developed rehearsals that include the techniques of 4-part acappella harmony, vocal production, performance expression, and stage presence. Award-winning Bella Acappella Harmony mentors the new singers. Music and part-specific learning CDs are provided to facilitate the learning process. Because the rehearsals are so engaging it is not unusual to have girls as young as 10 in the chorus or families of 3 generations singing together for the experience.
