Feb. 3, 2013 - PRLog -- The San Fernando Valley’s premier Barbershop Harmony Society chapter will begin the year in a direction designed to propel it firmly for success and prosperity.  To accentuate its connection to the community, the chapter will move to Encino.  Not just content with changing homes, the San Fernando Valley Chapter will also change the chorus name to the Valley Harmony Singers.

The new home of the Chapter will be the First Presbyterian Church of Encino located at 4963 Balboa Boulevard.  The Chapter is confident the move to Encino will be conducive to attracting interested singers from the Valley and the greater Los Angeles area.  “The changes are transformational,” says Bruce Poehlman, President.  “We are looking toward a vibrant and multi-faceted future as we increase our presence in the San Fernando Valley and the Encino community.”   Rehearsals for the chorus led by Master Music Director, Laura Pallas, will be on Mondays, starting at 7:00 pm.

With a new home also comes a chorus name change. The 40-member chorus will change its name from the Valleyaires to the Valley Harmony Singers. Most of the chorus members live in the San Fernando Valley, but the excellence of the Chorus has drawn men from a number of nearby communities, such as Santa Clarita Valley, Antelope Valley and Conejo Valley as well as other cities throughout northern and western Los Angeles County.  

The chorus, which specializes in male four-part a cappella barbershop harmony, will expand its repertoire to collaborate with local performing arts groups and build its audience.  “We are eager for these changes,” says Tim Salaver, VP, Member and Chapter Development.  “With our partners at Encino Presbyterian, we want to build opportunities for enrichment through the performing arts.  We feel very confident that having a home in Encino is the means to accomplish this.”  

Beginning February 4th, The Valley Harmony Singers will meet each Monday evening, from 7:00pm to 9:45pm, at the First Presbyterian Church in Encino.  All interested men are encouraged to come see what the fun and excitement is all about.  Call our SING line, 818-994-SING, with any questions, or check out our current website,  A new website is under development.
