Movin' on Up: Valleyaires become Valley Harmony Singers
Move to city of Encino precipitates new direction for San Fernando Valley's premier men's a cappella chorus
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,”
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, www.valleyaires.net. A new website is under development.
