Who is Harmony Sound Waves?
We are a women’s a cappella chorus located in New Smyrna Beach, Florida. We are a chapter of Harmony, Inc, an international organization of women barbershop singers in the United States and Canada. We’re all about harmony – in our music, our relationships, and in our community — working to grow a vibrant organization for women of all ages who love to sing! Our music is performed a cappella, and usually, but not always, in the barbershop style. We sing as a large chorus, and also have smaller ensembles and quartets. We have learning tracks for all our songs, so reading music is not a requirement!
Visit us anytime!
All our rehearsals are open to the public and to potential new members. You’re welcome to visit anytime! We rehearse every Tuesday evening at 6:30 at the First Presbyterian Church, 509 Magnolia Street, New Smyrna Beach, FL 32168.
What is Barbershop?
Barbershop harmony is unaccompanied four-part a cappella harmony. Although barbershop-style music is usually built on simple melodies and is relatively easy to sing, the a cappella style and the ear training necessary for independent part singing make it one of the most challenging and rewarding accomplishments of a vocal ensemble. When the music is sung accurately and with good breath support and vocal technique, barbershop harmony produces overtone vibrations that create a resonant ring unique to this form of music.
