With Valentine’s Day on the horizon, it’s a good time to appreciate the sound of a cappella music. This community is lucky enough to have the Santa Clarita Valley Men of Harmony available for serenades and entertainment at special events.
This group of musical men has brought their talents to Santa Clarita for more than 40 years.
“We love to present the unaccompanied human voice, singing from the heart,” says Men of Harmony historian, David Norman. “Our focus is on great singing with a variety of musical styles including barbershop harmony, doo-wop, swing era jazz, Tin Pan Alley musicals, and classic pop tunes in the mix. This music can take you back to the good old days of our youth and the first time we fell in love.”
The Santa Clarita Valley Men’s Barbershop singers are a nonprofit, charitable, educational, fraternal organization, founded in 1974. Each year the group performs numerous times in this and other nearby communities. Once a year, the group produces a big show at the Santa Clarita Valley Senior Center in Newhall.
The Men of Harmony chorus meets for rehearsals on Tuesday evenings from 7:30-9:45at the Valley Oaks Village Apartments on Valley Street in Newhall. The members’ talents are wide-ranging. They perform as quartets, dancers, jugglers, magicians, balloon artists and more.
They bring their voices to the ears of individuals throughout the community in the form of Valentine’s Day serenades and are available for parties and celebrations, but you need to schedule them soon. The group’s a cappella music can be presented in programs ranging from 20-90 minutes and can be adapted to specific audiences and occasions. They are eager to entertain your group, club or private party, and are able to offer discounts for qualifying service organizations.
