The Hunterdon Harmonizers presented an original musical adventure fun for kids and adults alike! Shows were at 3pm and 7pm on Saturday, December 14, 2019 at Hunterdon Central Regional High School.
It's the 24th of December and Santa sleeps right through his alarm and rushes to the sleigh to make his Christmas Eve deliveries. In his foggy haste he overlooks a single sack of treasured toys that were destined for a little house in suburban Indiana. The toys spring to life, and into action on a journey to the Parker house. Will they fly "to Indiana and beyond"? Will Red the Ranger shoot his eye out? Will the Parker boys awake to find Santa had passed them by?
These questions were musically answered in the Hunterdon Harmonizers' original holiday musical comedy, "A Christmas Toy's Story"! The holiday cheer didn't end there! The show continued with a concert of holiday favorites,, featuring the brilliant new chorus Somerset Hills Harmony, the Hunterdon Central Red Devils Orchestra and, of course, the Hunterdon Harmonizers! As a finishing touch all were invited to join the performers on stage in a massive chorus for the singing of Handel's "Hallelujah Chorus" from the Messiah - with a full orchestra! Many graduates of our "Ready-Set-Sing" programs participated, and we hope to see and hear them again for the 2020 Holiday Show!
The Hunterdon Harmonizers were proud to once again be a part of “Music Under the Stars,” sponsored by the Hunterdon County Division of Parks and Recreation. Our theme for 2019 was “It’s a Wonderful World,” and our selections included some sunny Broadway hits in our unique four-part a cappella style, a few swing numbers, some old standards, and several stirring patriotic songs. As a special treat, we featured a fantastic group of young singers, TRUE VOICE PROJECT, which is a non-profit choir for high school students and young adults, focused on creative musical collaboration. During our patriotic set, we had the honor of bringing two World War II veterans onto the stage and then capping the show with all present singing “God Bless America.” Our music and our audience participation is the heart that drives our Barbershop Society Theme song “Keep the Whole World Singing.” To get a taste of our excitement, just stop by 2 Stangl Road any Tuesday night at 7:45, and meet some Harmonizers… and feel the electricity! Give us a call at 908-806-NOTE.

Free singing lessons for all ages 8 to 90. If you ever wanted to sing in a safe environment and learn from vocal teachers - we invite you to come to six weeks of free singing lessons. The event will culminate with a ceremony, certificate, literature of singing groups that desire your participation and an opportunity to perform a song with the Hunterdon Harmonizers during its summer concert series. Please register as space is limited. You should plan on attending all six weeks as each week builds upon the instruction and exercises from the previous week.
Several of you joined the Harmonizers on stage this past August 1 for our performance in Hunterdon’s “Music Under the Stars” series at Deer Path Park. .
Our next series of Ready-Set-Sing free lessons will begin on April 28, 2020, and we welcome everybody who is a first-time singer and welcome back any post-graduates who want to brush up on the basics - and learn a new song!
The Hunterdon Harmonizers are grateful to you for joining us in harmony, and we would like to acknowledge the Hunterdon County Cultural and Heritage Commission and the Hunterdon County Board of Chosen Freeholders for their support of this program.

Harmony Foundation International (HFI) believes in the transformative power of singing. Raising your voice in song as an individual provides many physical and emotional benefits with regular practice and exercise and has been linked to medical therapies and healing. Even alone, singing stirs your spirit and heals emotion. Those who experience the joy of singing do better in school, their jobs, and family and social relationships. Harmony Foundation donors financially enable programs that share, nurture and perpetuate the love of singing, particularly in a group. Blending your voice with others deepens the experience to a much more intimate level. The act of human beings singing together breaks down barriers including economic, racial, cultural and gender demographic differences that may have otherwise hindered interaction.
Our mission is to connect people through charitable giving to enrich lives through singing.
As proud ambassadors for philanthropy, we link those who desire to be financial catalysts for singing programs directly to the impact partners providing programs that enrich lives through singing. We present facts and stories about the physical and emotional benefits singing does for individuals and their families, especially when harmonies are created within singing communities. By use of multiple mediums of communication, including personal visits to singing communities all across the country, we boast about programs that make true differences in the lives of participants and then solicit financial support to perpetuate singing for generations to come.
Harmony Foundation supports sharing the gift of singing as an extraordinary means of self-expression and self-actualization, making lives more enjoyable, satisfying, meaningful and purposeful. Even in times of dire circumstances in someone’s life, singing can help provide strength, hope and inspiration to persevere. Our goal is to be the most powerful influencer of singing in the entire world with hopes to grow stronger communities.
With the investments made by gracious donors, we are able to provide grant funding for singing education programs to students in middle school, high school, and college, as well as outreach programs throughout the country that promote, develop and advance opportunities for lifelong singing to people of all ages.
