An evening with Master Director, Jim Arns

On Monday, February 4th we had the honor of learning from Master Director 700 Jim Arns!

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.


Fun & Learning go hand in hand at January Jamboree

Educational opportunities abound when you are a member of a Sweet Adeline's chorus. This year's January Jamboree featured Diane Porsch!

Diane Porsch, Master Director of the Buffalo Gateway Show Chorus since the fall of 2001, is a life-long musician. She joined Sweet Adelines in 1974, got hooked on barbershop   music, and never left. In fact, she is such an avid and accomplished barbershopper it's how she makes her living! She spends most of her time focused on barbershop harmony as a Chorus Director, Coach, and Music Seminar Facilitator.


An evening with the W.O.W. group

Crosstown Harmony had another wonderful performance last night singing for the WOW Club's Holiday Party at the Milwaukee Moose Lodge. We've sung for this event for years--always a fun time.


Bells were ringing at the Burlington Christmas Parade

For the third evening in a row, enthusiastic members of Crosstown Harmony Chorus were out and about spreading good cheer through song. Tonight we entertained the crowds at the Burlington Christmas Parade. It's always a fun time, despite the cold temperature.


Rocking Around the Christmas Tree at Brenwood Park

Crosstown Harmony was thrilled to perform for the residents of the Brenwood Park Senior Community Center. It was an evening of joy, laughter and sing-along fun!

Caroling at the West Allis Christkindlmarkt

What a blast it was performing at the 2nd annual West Allis Christkindlmarkt. A special thank you to the West Allis Cheese & Sausage Shop for the invite!

Sponsored by the City of West Allis and Eat West Allis, Christkindlmarkt brings specialty food retailers and artisan crafters from around Wisconsin to West Allis for an unforgettable night of outdoor holiday shopping. There was live music, great food, wine from Corvina Wine Co. and brews from Westallion Brewing Co. It certainly put us in the holiday spirit. Be sure to come out next year!
