Much of what we do is centered around learning the craft of Barbershop singing.  The roots of Barbershop come from songs in the late 1800's and early 1900's.  While the style has changed to keep current with musical tastes, it still follows some basic structure: four parts, close harmony, lots of 7th chords, expanded sound and, of course, a capella (without instrument).


The Harmonizers  repertoire includes some of the old songs from the early 1900's up to the 1940's - and some of the more "contemporary" songs from the 1950's, 60's and 70's.

If you have an ear for music - or can read music, that will help, but it's not necessary.  Some of us can't read music either!

Be our guest at a Tuesday practice - 7:00 p.m. - and see and hear what we're all about!

Weekly practices - come and visit us on a Tuesday night !!

In response to Covid-19, Harmonizers have cancelled our Tuesday night Chorus practices and Thursday morning VLQ practices for the near future.  We will also not be engaging in any new sing-outs within the community.

In the meantime we are perodically getting together via 'Zoom' - if you would like to join our Zoom meetings/practices, as a guest, please contact David at 403-342-1318.

** Our Old-timers VLQ Group gets together for some harmony at Sunnybrook United Church, Red Deer - usually on the 1st and 3rd Thursdays of each month at 10am.
