Harmony is a community chorus for singers of all ages, designed to offer concerts for senior living communities, extended healthcare facilities, and hospitals. Conducted by Annie Rose and accompanied by Rosalie Koenig, Harmony’s 70+ members rehearse weekly throughout the academic year and present approximately 15 concerts each year.

During January and February, we offer online classes in music theory and history, as well as vocal technique and keyboard skills. We invite members of the community to join us.

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)?


  1. If there are multiple tracks, participants choose a single track for the 7-week class.
  2. There is no charge for the Institute classes. Harmony is sponsored by The Hive Project at Macon Creek. As part of our mission to empower artists, educators and entrepreneurs (young and old) united by a common desire to share, teach, innovate and compassionately serve, we encourage you to make a tax-deductible donation here.

Amie Morrison teaches music history, theory, and aural skills at Brooklyn College. This is her fourth residency on the faculty of Harmony Winter Institute.

Annie Rose is the Music Director of Harmony. She maintains a voice studio in Ann Arbor and serves as Cantor Emerita of Temple Beth Emeth.
