Harmonium Choral Society
Harmonium Choral Society is one of New Jersey's leading choral arts organizations. Founded in 1979, it has been led by Yale-educated Artistic Director Dr. Anne Matlack since 1987. The 90-member chorus and its select 20-voice Chamber Singers are made up of committed volunteers from northern New Jersey and surrounding areas. Membership is by audition.
Named Outstanding Arts Organization in 1998 by the Arts Council of the Morris Area, and winners of Chorus America's prestigious Education Outreach Program Award in 2009, Harmonium is dedicated to performing a diverse repertoire at a high artistic level, and increasing community appreciation of choral music through concerts, education and outreach. Our concert season consists of three concerts, in December, March, and June, performed in Morristown and Madison.
Harmonium's annual High School Student Choral Compostion Contest, first held in the 1997-1998 season, encourages students throughout the state of New Jersey to study the art of composition. Contest winners are showcased at Harmonium's Spring concert.
