The Harmony Magic Women’s Barbershop Chorus wants to infuse the holiday season with the magic of music.
The group formed in 2006 when members of another chorus left to create their own choir.
“Over the years, the word has spread,” said Kelly Kahn, chorus member and Westfield resident. “We were having a meeting in a restaurant, and before our meal, we sang harmony grace, a short prayer. Our waitress was so impressed, we left her with our information. She’s been a member with us now for almost a year and a half.”
Harmony Magic is presenting a holiday concert at 3 p.m. Dec. 14 at Westfield’s Carey Ridge Elementary School,16231 Carey Rd.
“We’ll be signing some traditional holiday music,” Kahn said. “Then we add in some not-so-traditional songs that are a lot of fun. The concert is called ‘Holiday Magic.’”
The 28 female members practice every Thursday evening and regulary performc concerts across the state.
“Right now, we’re practicing at a church in Tipton, but we’re looking for a space in Westfield,” Kahn said. “We have members who live in Camel, Westfield, Zionsville and Whitestown.”
The self-proclaimed sisterhood is all about inclusion.
“This group is about more than just singing,” Kahn said. “We welcome all women, and we are making changes to embrace changes in our society. We’re not exclusionary. If you identify as a woman, you are welcome with us and truly welcomed with open arms.”
Tickets for the Dec. 14 concert are $10 for adults and $5 for students. Children 5 and under are free. To purchase tickets, visit holidaymagicdec14.bpt.me. For more about Harmony Magic Women’s Barbershop Chorus, visit harmonymagic.org.
