About Magic of Harmony Show Chorus

Magic of Harmony Show Chorus is a membership organization of female singers, who meet regularly to practice, perform, socialize, and have fun. Through the years, membership has varied from 25 - 50 singers of all ages, all walks of life, and all parts of the Hampton Roads area.



Our great joy is sharing our original American art form with the public. We entertain throughout the Hampton Roads area at conventions, benefits, local festivals, for civic organizations and senior living centers. Our year is highlighted with an annual show. We are available to sing at your next function or event. If you're looking for a unique musical experience to liven up your event, please check out our Hire Us section.


In addition to sharing our music with others, another great passion of ours is learning more about the art of a cappella singing in the "Barbershop" style. Vocal instruction is a regular part of chorus rehearsals, and a very important component of the chorus experience. A couple of times a year, we will get coaching from a visiting master in the art of barbershop, where we learn many fabulous tricks of the trade. We pride ourselves on the quality of our performance skills and through competitions have a way to measure our musical growth.


In the spring of every year, Magic of Harmony Show Chorus participates in the Region 14 chorus competition. Competitions are a special time for quartets and choruses from our region to come together to sing for each other, and get some constructive feedback from a panel of judges by competing in either the International Division or the Open Division. Magic of Harmony enjoys competing in the Open Division at competition, where we perform an entertainment package complete with a scripted story line and songs.  In 2015, we won the Audience Choice Award!


The winners of the Internation Division of regional competition in both quartet and chorus categories get to travel to International Competition, which is held in the fall in a city selected each year. Click here to learn more.


Most choruses have a number of members who form their own vocal quartets in addition to singing with the chorus. Magic of Harmony Show Chorus currently is home to a number of wonderful quartets, and we are very proud of them! Click here to see our quartet section to learn more about them.



Magic of Harmony Show Chorus was founded and organized in Williamsburg, Virginia as Publick Times Chorus, and became an official chapter of Sweet Adelines International on July 23, 1973. We became known as the  Magic of Harmony Show Chorus in April 2012. Today we are chartered in Newport News Virginia.  Sweet Adelines, International is a non-profit organization of approximately 30,000 members in choruses and quartets, worldwide. The Headquarters is in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
