About Harmony On The Bay

 

Harmony On The Bay is a chorus that is part of Sweet Adelines International.  We are female singers who meet regularly to practice, perform, socialize, and have fun.  


We sing in four part harmony!  We have a place for every voice.  We focus on making every woman a more confident and skilled singer.  Our members have a vast range of musical talent and barborshop experience. 


Our members live and work in Kent County, Queen Anne's County, Caroline County, Wicomico and Talbot Counties on Maryland's beautiful eastern shore.  


We love perform in the community and many different local events.  We compete annually in regional contest and produce our very own show each year.

Education

 

In addition to sharing our music with others, another great passion of ours is learning more about the art of acapella singing. Vocal instruction is a regular part of chorus rehearsals, and a very important component of the chorus experience. A couple of times a year, we will get coaching from a visiting master in the art of barbershop, where we learn many fabulous tricks of the trade.

 

 

 Competition

 

In the spring of every year, Harmony On The Bayparticipates in our Region's chorus competition.  The regional competition in 2016 took place in Hershey, PA. and will be held there again in 2017.

Competitions are a special time for quartets and choruses from our region to come together to sing for each other, and get some constructive feedback from a panel of judges. The winners of the regional competition in both quartet and chorus categories get to travel to International Competition, which is held in the fall in a city selected each year.

In 2014, International Competition was held in Baltimore, MD.  We were thrilled to meet so many singers from so many areas.

Quartets

 

Most choruses have a number of members who form their own vocal quartets in addition to singing with the chorus.  Our quartet is "Hot Pink" and they are quite entertaining!
