Recording Vocal Rush was a breeze. These high school kids are insanely talented and they know how to execute their vision.

Vocal Rush, from the Oakland School of the Arts, also won the 2017 ICHSA Finals.  For that win, they get a "bye" to the Finals of Varsity Vocals' first annual AcaOpen.

They won this 5-song EP by winning the high school competition at NACC 2016, which they absolutely deserved. It's an amazing prize which would normally cost thousands of dollars, and the students get to experience a professional recording and come away with a tangible memory of their time in their a cappella group.
Be on the lookout for their new EP!

Celebrating 60 Years of Harmony, Inc.

In 1957, a significant shift of needs and ideals in the women's barbershop community led to the creation of second organization. After a struggle of meetings and debate, the Melody Belles of Rhode Island were the first chorus to officially split from Sweet Adelines, followed closely by four more choruses to pursue a different direction. These 150 women propelled the creation of what became Harmony, Incorporated.
