Our Director

Northwest Harmony Chorus

The love of music and performing brought us together with a shared commitment to improvement, and the friendships, fun, and food keep us together!

Northwest Harmony is a women's chorus of dynamic ladies singing a capella 4-part harmony in the barbershop style - which is one of the truly American musical art forms!  The chorus and its quartets perform throughout the year for private and public events; they also compete annually in a regional chorus competition which keeps them focused on refining their singing and performing skills.

Membership in Northwest Harmony provides friendships with other singers as well as a myriad of opportunities to learn and grow both personally and musically.
