Hillside in Harmony

What is harmony? How do you know what to sing? Learn how to listen, find and develop harmony parts. Each session will offer how-to tips and harmony singing practice as we work through exercises and songs. Over the four weeks, we’ll also work on developing a harmony arrangement for a brand-new song written just for Hillside in our “Write Your Hillside Hallelujah” course running in December 2022. The finished product will be performed at Hillside Inside and/or the summer Hillside Festival! You can take these two courses separately, or together. No experience is necessary, we’ll be working by ear so you do not need to know how to read music for this class.


Thursdays, January 5, 12, 19, and 26, 2023 via Zoom at 7-9 pm.
