What we're about

YOU KNOW how good it feels to belt out a great rock song? Wait till you try it will a room full of like-minded rockers! And then... with the professional back up band!!!

SO. MUCH. FUN.!!!

We memorize and refine harmonies to epic rock tunes (chosen by the choir) like Bohemian Rhapsody, Somebody to Love, Don't Stop Believin', Carry On My Wayward Son, just to name a few! (SEE YouTube links below!) This year we even got to go into the recording studio!

HERE IS OUR LATEST VIRTUAL VIDEO - More Than a Feeling (Boston): https://youtu.be/wy4yB5KPTGA

NO EXPERIENCE NECESSARY!
Our patient and hilarious musical directors coach us until we can confidently and impeccably belt out these harmonically complex and rhythmically challenging songs - and we all learn it!

Anyone, any age is welcome to come and try it out - the first two weeks in September and the first two weeks in January. -the more the merrier! Last year we had 65 registered members between the ages of 16 - 80!

Check out our recordings on Sound Cloud! https://soundcloud.com/harmonyhousestudio/dont-stop-believing?in=harmonyhousestudio/sets/2016-dare-to-dream-sessions

DETAILS: The choir meets every Thursday night from 7:00 - 9pm on Zoom!

Everyone is welcome to come and try our choir free of charge for the first couple times you come. When you decide you'd like to join us regularly the TOTAL COST $479 for the year (10% savings for yearly membership).

Can't commit to a whole year? We start with new repertoire in January so you can join by term:

Term 1 (September - December): $213
Term 2 (January - June): $319

FAMILIES ROCK! 20% off for couples/family members

Prefer to drop in? So sorry, but that just doesn't work with what we're trying to accomplish.

AMAZING VALUE!
Normally membership dues help to cover the hard costs of running the choir:
1) the weekly cost of the hall rental and the directors
2) the Kay Meek Theatre rental including sound & lightening techs & a professional back up band for 4 performances & 4 sound checks (and directors)
3) two recording sessions at a professional recording studio with professional sound engineers, a professional back up band and directors.

During covid our hard costs have actually increased but we are keeping the fees the same:
1) the cost of the set up and tear down time for the rehearsals and maintenance of equipment
2) tech support for choristers to use the online resources including - video recordings of every rehearsal including; warm ups, skills & drills (ear training, sight singing & vocal technique), and performance coaching
3) video editing and posting of rehearsals and our virtual videos. (This is a huge expense, but so worth it when you see what Jeremy is able to do! Be sure to check out our soon to be released "Who Are You" virtual choir video on our BRAND NEW Classic Rock Choir YouTube Channel! https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCvc810dxPL_rEJvbNYPKSsg/featured

PERFORMANCE DATES FOR 2020
December 1st - All personal videos due
December 11th - 25th Annual Winter Express Concert at Kay Meek Studio Theatre

June 2021!

NOTE: WE ARE A PERFORMANCE ORIENTED CHOIR; Performing at a refined level of execution is our idea of FUN! REGULAR ATTENDANCE IS NECESSARY in order for us to reach our goals.

SO SO SO MUCH FUN SOCIAL EVENTS! Above and beyond the performances and recording sessions, we offer a social night half way through each term. Essentially an old fashioned "coffee house", where members take turns entertaining one another. Whether it's a joke, a skit, a song or a lip sync - it's all in the name of FUN and actually works really well on Zoom! We've had some hilarious moments and some really sweet moments and poignantly beautiful moments all in the same night. WE LOVE our coffee houses! SAVE THE DATE: OCTOBER 24, 2020 7 - 9pm.

CRC YouTube LINKS: All these songs were chosen by the choir. More than 1/2 the people in the videos below had never sung in a group before let alone performed! Don't let the fact that you're inexperienced stop you. If you LOVE Classic Rock Music, and LOVE the idea of belting out these great tunes with like minded souls accompanied by a professional band, then come and try it!
