Fog City Harmonia
A new women’s ensemble in the Fog City organization, coming Spring 2019.
Our mission is to create a collective of like-minded musicians, to remain rooted in barbershop while showcasing our diverse musical backgrounds, and to further the San Francisco barbershop revolution.
In Greek Mythology, Harmonia is the goddess of harmony and concord. She is the daughter of Ares, god of war, and Aphrodite, goddess of love. Harmonia is a deity known for presiding over cosmic balance, guiding harmonious actions of soldiers in war, and being pure of heart.
Please join us for our inaugural performance with the founding chorus members of Fog City Harmonia!
