Come sing with East Bay Harmony, an Oakland-based a cappella chorus established in 1999. 

New members welcome through the end of October. Then we will close rehearsals until May but will be welcoming people to check us out then and see what you think! But if you are a Bass or Baritone and feel like you can learn music fairly easily, please feel free to contact me as we are always a little short of deep voices.

We rehearse weekly and exist to promote the fun of singing together and building community through music making.

THE BASIC INFO - No audition required - all adults welcome! - No music reading skill required! - Super fun, friendly community, low-pressure environment - Eclectic, all a cappella repertoire - We provide easy-to use online tools for helping you learn your part quickly and accurately -

Periodic performances in the community throughout the year in addition to our big “Friends and Family” concert in the Spring - Weekly post-chorus small group harmony singing sessions

WHAT WE SING Our repertoire has included jazz, pop, blues, rock, R&B, folk, and spirituals, and is chosen democratically each year by the chorus membership. Here’s a sample of what we’ve sung recently: “Ain’t Too Proud to Beg” (Temptations) An ABBA Medley “Crazy Little Thing Called Love” (Queen) “Creep” (Radiohead) “Don’t Know Why” (Norah Jones)” “Down in the River to Pray” (Spiritual) “Fields of Gold” (Sting) “I Feel Fine” (Beatles) “I’m Yours” (Jason Mraz) “Modern Major General” (Gilbert & Sullivan) “Puttin’ on the Ritz” (Irving Berlin) “Route 66” (Bobby Troupe) “Under the Sea” (from “The Little Mermaid”)
