Saying I Love You Through Song

Quartets from the award-winning Crosstown Harmony Chorus serenaded sweethearts and loved ones throughout Wisconsin for an unforgettable Valentine’s Day gift!

     


Coaching with the Fantastic Jim Arns

Last night, Crosstown Harmony had a fabulous coaching session with the fabulous Jim Arns. One more step on our way to Regional Competition this April!

Jim Arns has directed the Melodeers Chorus since 1988, and is one of an elite group of directors to receive the Master Director 700, created in 2009 by Sweet Adelines International to honor musical directors whose choruses score 700 points or more (out of a possible 800) in Regional Competitions.


Crosstown Outing at the Movies

We may perform in the Babershop style, but that doesn't mean we don't appreciate other genres. Crosstown members took a field trip to the movies to see Pitch Perfect 3. We had a ball!


It's a Crosstown Christmas Party

Crosstown members new and old get together for a end of year holiday celebration. We reflected on our accomplishments, enjoyed some delicious food and drinks, played a few games, exchanged gifts, laughed and of course, we sang. This year we even held a supply drive for the Sojourner Family Peace Center. What better way to celebrate the holiday season than with 40 of your closest friends!


Entertaining the W.O.W. group

The Milwaukee W.O.W Club (Widowers of War) was founded in 1972 to offer friendship to those who have lost a spouse. Their families paid the ultimate price for our freedom and Crosstown Harmony Chorus is honored to have been invited back to perform for them. Even one of our own members is a member of the group! 

If you are interested in joining W.O.W. please visit their website for more information. http://milwwowclub.info/


Aurora Grafton Bariatric Holiday Party

Crosstown Harmony Chorus was excited to bring our musical talents to the Aurora Grafton clinic for their Bariatric Holiday Party on December 7th. A unique healing environment in the heart of Grafton. As the only ‘green’ medical center in Wisconsin, this facility was designed with your health and the environment in mind. You’ll find an extraordinary team of doctors, nurses and caregivers, along with exceptional amenities at Aurora Medical Center in Grafton.

Caroling at the Burlington Christmas Parade and Tree Lighting

Crosstown Harmony brought lots of Christmas cheer to the Burlington Christmas Parade & Tree Lighting Ceremony Friday, December 1st.

This year’s parade theme was a “Who-Ville Christmas in Burlington."  The event was full of sweets, happiness, and fantastical floats that glided through the historic downtown, and Crosstown Harmony was there carolling the streets before the parade to get everyone in a festive mood.


Thank you to everyone who attended "Let Freedom Sing"

WOW what a turn out! Thank you to everyone who came out to see our musical tribute to the armed forces, and to everyone involved in putting the show together. Crosstown Harmony Chorus and member quartets hope you enjoyed your afternoon of music, won a few Raffle baskets, and partook in some delicious desserts and beverages. Most of all, thank you to all our service members who attended and to all those that serve this great country. We owe you are freedoms and appreciate your sacrifices.
