Hunterdon Harmonizers expand with new all-voice chorus, which includes women


The “Hunterdon Harmonizers” men’s chorus based in Flemington, N.J., begins a new tradition with the addition of an all-voice chorus.
The new group, “Vocal Synergy,” is already experiencing great interest from singers of all walks of life seeking a welcoming musical experience in the Skylands area of New Jersey.
Recently the Barbershop Harmony Society broke with its 80-year all-male tradition and adopted a new vision of “Everyone in Harmony.” The Hunterdon Harmonizers are an affiliate of that organization and have embraced the vision by creating a new a cappella choral opportunity for treble and bass voices while continuing the opportunity for men to sing with the Harmonizers.

The brainchild of several local leaders and musicians, Vocal Synergy aims to provide a safe space for all levels of singing experience to make beautiful music in a collaborative environment.
With a focus on popular a cappella music, this mixed voice choir under the leadership of Charles Ross and Kenneth Bryson brings more than 35 years of musical experience. “Charlie” Ross is an experienced director of numerous Barbershop choruses for over 25 years. Ken Bryson is director of Choral Programs at Chatham High School and a graduate of The Juilliard School with a Masters in Vocal Performance.
