Interested in exploring another vocal music genre? Want to connect with others who like to sing and perform? Visit Greeley Harmonix. We audition members throughout the year.
Greeley Harmonix is based in Greeley but we sing pretty much anywhere in Northern Colorado. You may have heard us sing at the Johnstown Quilt Fair, for residents at Grace Pointe, for the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation's annual spring banquet, as an opening act for Kream of the Krop Big Band at the Festival of Trees, and we regularly perform at the High Plains Harmony Young Singers Festival in June, to name a few of our community performances.
How often does Greeley Harmonix rehearse?
Rehearsals are the 2nd and 4th Monday of the month, beginning in January. We may have intermittent rehearsals in the summer for community performance requests and we take off the month of August. Rehearsals resume in September to prepare for our annual Christmas concert which is on the second Saturday in December.
What is required to audition?
We ask singers to memorize music, sing accurately, independently, and in a manner that blends with other singers. If you have prior choir experience you have these skills. If you haven't sung in a choir, you would learn these skills as you participate in rehearsals prior to your audition.
Do I have to be able to read music?
Reading music is not an audition requirement but certainly will help you learn music faster. We do offer learning tracks to help singers learn music, and - because of the way we learn music and the education provided - you will begin to acquire sight singing skills!
Is there an age limit to be able to join?
The minimum age to be eligible to audition is 14 years.
How much time will it take to be a member of Greeley Harmonix?
We want singers to come prepared to rehearsals. The Members area of our weekly calendar - accessible on our website - will identify the music list for each rehearsal so singers can practice during the week.
Greeley Harmonix has a lot to offer you. We have vocal education classes, performance classes and other education opportunities to enhance your affiliation. Plus, members of Harmonix also are members of Sweet Adelines International. SAI offers a numerous vocal and performance workshops at various times throughout the year.
