Crosstown Harmony Chorus brought the music, cheer and the holiday spirit to St. Anthony Parish School on Sunday, December 4th as we performed for a group of nearly 200 attendees with disabilities. The crowd really got into the show, singing and clapping along. As a performer, an enthusiastic audience really helps make us better performers and it is such an enjoyable experience. Thank you for inviting us to sing for you!
Crosstown Harmony brought lots of Christmas cheer to the Burlington Christmas Parade & Tree Lighting Ceremony on Friday, December 2nd.
This year’s parade theme was the “Christmas Vacation" and it was an event is full of sweets, happiness, and fantastical floats that glided through the historic downtown. Crosstown harmony got the crowd in the holiday spirit by carolling the streets before the parade to get everyone in a festive mood.
Crosstown Harmony Chorus was invited back for its second year in a row to help bring the music of the season to San Camillo during their Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony. It was a jolly good time!
This holiday season Crosstown Harmony Chorus is bringing the music of the season to communities throughout Wisconsin. We just love sharing our medley of heartwarming music to people who otherwise may not able to get out and experience a quality performance like a Crosstown performance. We were honored to perform for the veterans and staff members at the VA Medical Center on November 28th who seemed equally delighted with the show. The Milwaukee VA Medical Center offers a variety of health services to meet the needs of our nation's Veterans and we hope to be invited back again soon!
Crosstown Harmony had a great time performing at the Christkindlmarket Mass on November 20th at Best Place. The Historic Pabst Brewery and Mader’s Restaurant partnered to create an authentic German Christkindlmarket that ran from Thursday, November 17 through Sunday, November 20 in downtown Milwaukee, admission was free.
Food and beverages included a variety of items such as schnitzel, sauerbraten, strudel, bratwursts, potato pancakes, pretzels, soups, roasted nuts, stollen, hot chocolate & Gluhwein (hot spiced wine). Of course, there was an assortment of German beer including Spaten varieties of which our chorus had to try a few ourselves. Crosstown members had a blast at this event and hope you will check it out next year, this is one event you won't want to miss!

Crosstown Harmony Chorus formed 65 years ago and shows no signs of slowing down. We've laughed, loved and made beautiful music. This chorus is more than a group of singers, it's a group of extraordinary, hard working women committed to musical excellence through education, performance and competition in the Barbershop style. But perhaps most importantly, we're a group of friends, a sisterhood bound by music. Here's to 65 more!
(pictured above: for our final number we invited all our fellow Sweet Adelines in the audience on stage to perform "How We Sang Today" with us. Once a Sweet Adeline, always a Sweet Adeline!)
What a show! We are thrilled that everyone enjoyed our fall cabaret "Come Go With Me", featuring the silky jazz tones of our Special Guest Star - Heart to Heart
The audience sang, laughed, won fantastic raffle prizes, but most of all had a great time. Thank you to all who attended, we look forward to seeing you at the next show!
