Meet New Jerseys Newest Mens A Cappella Ensemble!
- OPEN HOUSE, MONDAY, FEBRUARY 28th AT 7 PM
We are excited to announce the creation of a new men's chorus, the Jersey Harmony Express. The ensemble will be a premiere men's a cappella chorus based in the Bridgewater, New Jersey area, the junction of many major New Jersey routes. We are embarking on a magical musical journey, steeped in the tradition of the American barbershop style yet featuring an expanding repertoire to include a selection of challenging contemporary works. The Express is committed to captivating audiences with thrilling performances and difficult pieces while providing an enjoyable environment for its members.
The group will be holding an Open House on Monday, February 28th, at 7:00 at the Arbor Glen Retirement Community in the Community Center, located at 100 Monroe Street, Bridgewater, NJ. If directions are needed, Arbor Glen has information at www.arborglen.org/directions.php and they can be reached at (908) 595-6600.
At the Open House you will experience such arrangements as Engebretson's eight part "Scarborough Fair" and Whitacre's "Lux Aurumque", famously performed by the Westminster Chorus in the Choir of the World competition and their most recent CD, "It Only Takes A Moment". Auditions for the ensemble will take place in March. Those interested in auditioning will have the opportunity to purchase the sheet music and professional learning tracks to these two amazing works at the Open House. Your purchase will be credited to member dues should you become a member of the ensemble.
Jersey Harmony Express rehearsals will be held the 2nd and 4th Mondays of the month from 7:00-9:00 PM as well as the first Saturday morning from 9:00 AM to noon. The group welcomes all to attend the open house.
The Jersey Harmony Express will be guiding the future of a cappella music and welcomes experienced singers to get on board what should truly be a one of a kind ride. Prior a cappella or barbershop singing will not be required but a dedication to excellent singing and performance is a must. If interested, please RSVP to the chorus at jhxchorus@....
