The Harmony Singers of Pittsburgh, a voluntary performing choral group, are currently celebrating their 52nd season, as well as preparing for the 50th production of their annual spring musical variety show.
Originally formed as the Westminster Community Singers in 1966, the name was changed to the Bob Locklin Singers in 1967. In 1969 the first Don Brockett Musical Comedy Review was produced. The name was changed to the Harmony Singers of Pittsburgh in 1976, and since that time the spring show has become an annual event.
As a lead to the annual spring show, numerous performances and concerts are given throughout the holiday season. Most of these performances take place at senior residential homes and retirement/life care communities and culminate in a final Christmas concert.
The Harmony Singers range in age from early 20’s to mid 70’s, both men and women, who enjoy singing, dancing, and doing comedy. The members are teachers, engineers, nurses, counselors, bus drivers, bank/city executives, interior designers, housing managers, salespeople, and retired persons.
Past performances have included shows, both small and large, at retirement communities, church group functions, and local schools, in addition to occasionally performing the national anthem at Riverhounds soccer and Pirates baseball games. Historically the big event for the Harmony Singers has been the annual spring show, held at the Chartiers Valley Intermediate School. The spring show features a different collection each year of musical numbers and dance routines ranging from Broadway and big band to classic and contemporary popular music.
The Harmony Singers are available to perform for your civic, social, church or business group. Also, new members are always welcome to join and share in the fun!
