    Harmony Fusion, a chapter of Sweet Adelines International (SAI), is open to female singers as young as high school age.  The group generally meets Monday nights from 7pm – 9:30 pm in Hayward. Guests are always welcome but September 19 is set aside as a special open rehearsal.

    “We’re looking for women who love to sing and are interested in performing, competing, and improving their vocal skills. We welcome all singers with or without choral experience to the guest night to find out if Harmony Fusion is a good fit for them. We are eager to share the sisterhood of a cappella with our guests. If you have a good ear for music, we want you!  The ability to read music is not required!”

    At this special interactive rehearsal, visitors will experience what it’s like to sing in the barbershop style as a member of Harmony Fusion. After a meet and greet, guests will join members on the risers to experience the joy of “ringing chords” together. Guests who are interested in further exposure to our singing style will have the opportunity to attend future rehearsals and learn one full arrangement to perform at our show on October 29, 2022.

    Music education in Barbershop singing is the mission of Sweet Adelines, but the organization also provides opportunities to sing in other styles. In addition to the joy of singing in our sisterhood, members learn proper vocal technique for ensemble singing from our director and coaches, and perform at events throughout the East Bay.  Membership includes access to weekend workshops in vocal techniques, singing in a quartet, learning to direct, and multiple aspects of performing.

    Harmony Fusion has also been recognized for its high member retention rate as a four-time winner of the SAI Region 12 BRAVO award. We are extremely proud of the award, and are the first and only group to receive the award four times! We believe our welcoming and supportive culture, and of course, our fabulous director Barb, inspire our members to show up consistently and share their love of singing.
