Harmony Ann Arbor

Harmony Ann Arbor is a community chorus for singers of all ages, designed to offer choral performances to audiences in senior living communities, extended healthcare facilities, and hospitals. We are inspired by and devoted to the power of live performance for audiences as well as our choir members.

Our repertoire includes a wide variety of styles and genres, from Mozart and Rossini to Broadway favorites and beloved folk songs from around the world.

Conducted by Annie Rose and accompanied by Rosalie Koenig, Harmony’s 50+ members rehearse weekly throughout the academic year and present approximately 15 concerts each year.

Popular Music: Evolutions

taught by Amie Morrison

In this series, we will follow threads within 20th Century popular music.

Each week, we’ll look through a different lens:

How did we get from Motown and soul to modern forms of dance music, and what were the intermediate steps?

How did the emergence of the electric guitar catalyze the music that would dominate the airwaves for decades, and how did innovations in techniques and technology shape evolutions of rock (and vice versa)?
