Group Outing: Pentatonix!

It's not all work and no play for Crosstown Harmony members. Quite the opposite! Friendships are formed and carry into our everyday lives, and we're always planning fun events. On July, 8th Eighty Three of our members, friends & family converged upon the WI State Fair to watch a great performance by Pentatonix. There's nothing better than attending a concert with people who appreciate a cappella music as much as you do.


Tip Your Bartender

Crosstown Harmony Chorus members filled the beer stand at the Ozaukee County Fair to serve up suds to its' fairgoers. We had a great time hanging out with our Crosstown sisters and singing for our supper! Thanks to everyone who gave their time to work the fair and to the patrons who generously tipped us for our hard work. We'll be back again next year!

We had a ball on The Morning Blend

The Morning Blend is Milwaukee's local, live morning talk show starring hosts Molly Fay & Tiffany Ogle. They showcase local businesses, non-profits, events and celebrities. We had a blast showcasing our talents to the TV audience and hope we captured the attention of anyone intersted in singing. Come join us!

West Allis Ala Carte 10 year Anniversary

The Annual West Allis A La Carte is the biggest non-fair park event in the city of West Allis! This event brings local businesses, schools, community organizations, and restaurants together for a real taste of the city. 2017 was the 10th anniversary, and Crosstown Harmony performed at the event at 2pm and 5pm on the Variety Stage. We even had a booth with information about upcoming Crosstown Harmony events and how to become a member.

Check out this video about the event. Crosstown Harmony Chorus is featured at around the 8min mark https://youtu.be/QNO3g_r8G9M.


Fundraising Fun

The success of many artistic endeavors often depends on the generosity of its supporters. We host numerous fundraisers each year to reach our goals. One such fundraiser include selling Pizzas. Saturday Crosstown members came together to assemble these delicious pizza pies. It was a day filled with music, laughter and fun. Thank you to everyone who purchased and participated!
