Dear Friend of Harmony,

 

What do you think of when you hear the words “barbershop harmony”?  We hope it’s Kansas City’s own Heart of America Chorus (HOA), or one of our several entertaining chapter quartets.  We’ve been around since 1938 – and this uniquely American musical style has been part of our national fabric since well before the turn of the 19th Century.

 

Our 100-plus-member chorus is the backbone of the Kansas City Chapter of the Barbershop Harmony Society -- the world’s largest all-male singing organization. We come from across the KC Metro area and beyond, all backgrounds and all ages, with one common goal: to join in fellowship and song.  That harmony is important to our community not just for our longevity, but also for the considerable pride we take in our civic production.  In our seven decades, the K.C. Chapter has attracted an estimated 50 million dollars to the area through hosting numerous regional and five international conventions – the last one held in the Sprint Center in July of 2011.

 

Our charitable singing endeavors are second to none.  Among the groups we support are Children’s Mercy Hospital, the Salvation Army and Youth in Harmony programs.  Most of our funds are raised through our annual shows (spring and holiday) and our Singing Valentine program.  But it’s no secret that these economic times are taking their toll on 501(3)C organizations such as ours, and their supporters.  So we are turning to you.

 

Your contribution will help us support our musical outreach programs, travel to competitions (the HOA Chorus has appeared 21 times on the international stage), buy uniforms and music, and in general, sustain our operations. And, your donation may be tax-deductible! (Please check with your tax advisor.)

 

We are grateful for your support in the past.   Now we hope you’ll click on the Donation button below or print a mail-in donation form to make a much-needed and highly appreciated donation to the Heart of America Chorus – one of the nation’s oldest and still premier barbershop harmony organizations!

As always, we thank you for your support!
