The Heart of Harmony Chorus was formed way back in 2006 by Jack Ryback and a few other Milwaukee area barbershop singers. Their goal was to create a chorus that strived for musical excellence, while also having fun singing and performing in the Milwaukee area. Shortly after, more members joined the HOH, as the chorus increased in size, they began making a name for themselves, winning awards at district contents.
The HOH officially became a part of the Society for the Preservation and Encouragement of Barbershop Quartet Singing in America (SQEBSQA) and held the first rehearsal on August 22nd, 2006. Over the years the Heart of Harmony Chorus (HOH) has made many achievements including first place chorus in the Land O Lakes District Division One and achieves as high as third place in the entire District.
The HOH is a fun loving good singing group and guests are welcome anytime. The chapter membership has gone through some ups and downs, but we’ve always managed to keep a ringing chords and creating harmony.
To accomplish its vision, the West Allis Chapter shall enhance the lives of all individuals with whome they come in contact as they share their love of male a capella singing, founded in the barbershop harmony style, through both education of singers, young and old, and superior performances honed by their commitment to excellence in competition.
The West Allis Chapter is to be a widley recognized, ever-growing fraternity of men drawn together by their love of the four-part, a capella, close harmony style of vocal music, and their passion to perpetuate that art form as they share it with people of all ages throughout the world.
