About Spirit of Harmony Chorus

Spirit of Harmony Chorus is an organization of female singers, whose goal is to create a warm, friendly atmosphere of caring and friendship while creating musical excellence for the personal growth and development of each member as well as providing entertainment for our audiences.  We meet regularly to rehearse, learn more about the barbershop artform, socialize, and have fun. We currently have over 30 singers of all ages, all walks of life, and from all over the Iowa Great Lakes corridor and beyond.




Another purpose of Spirit of Harmony Chorus is to perform for our community. We sing at annual shows, a number of community events, and at annual competitions.  We are available to sing at your next function or event. If you're looking for a unique musical experience to liven up your event, please check out our Hire Us section.




In addition to sharing our music with others, another great passion of ours is learning more about the art of a cappella singing. Vocal instruction is a regular part of chorus rehearsals, and a very important component of the chorus experience.  Several  times a year we are coached by a visiting expert in the art of barbershop, where we learn many fabulous tricks of the trade.


CompetitionIn the spring of every year, Spirit of Harmony Chorus participates in the Northern Lights Region 6 chorus competition.  In 2018 the competition will be held in Minneapolis, MN. 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 2018, International Competition will be held in St. Louis.



Most choruses have a number of members who form their own vocal quartets in addition to singing with the chorus.   Spirit of Harmony is proud to have Affinity quartet among our ranks, all members of the chorus.




Spirit of Harmony Chorus is a chapter of Sweet Adelines International, a non-profit organization of approximately 24,000 members in choruses and quartets, worldwide, currently the largest barbershop organization in the world. The Headquarters is in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
