Home of the Harmony Katz

We are a group of men from all walks of life and all ages who love to sing and care deeply about our community. Our membership is growing and we sing for fun, participate in barbershop chorus contests, field several quartets; and paid performances. Our most important focus is helping to support the Food Bank of Central New York and other charitable organizations by holding concerts for their financial benefit! We've shown we can make a difference by raising the "siren's call" through singing.

The closing song for our food bank concerts and every practice is a barbershop number titled - "We Sing to Feed Them All". This characterizes our purpose. The lyrics are:

"We sing to feed them all, the family in need.
 We sing to answer every prayer a mother cannot heed.
 We sing to touch the noble heart and raise the siren's call.
 We sing to feed each hungry child.
 We sing to feed them all."


Join Us
We are looking for men of all ages to experience the joy that comes with what we do, and join us in our hobby. Practices are at 6:00pm - 8:30 Mondays at St. Daniels church in Lyncourt located at 3004 Court St, Syracuse, NY 13208 (near the corner of Court St. and Teall Ave). We rehearse in the gym in the back of the church.. You need not be a great singer. We will teach you how to bring beauty and support to those less fortunate through barbershop singing.

Our First CD
(More to Come) Sales Benefit the Food Bank of CNY

Available through this site, at Nice N Easy and many other CNY area stores.

'Tis the season, and we will have the opportunity to hear Christmas Carols almost everywhere we go, but this CD presents a new presentation. Performed by the Harmony Kats men's barbershop chorus, this CD incorporates many old favorites. At least one carol from the 1800's "The Birthday of a King" formatted especially for the Harmony Katz by Joe Brown, an arranger well known for his work on barbershop music.

We recorded this CD as a benefit for the Food Bank of CNY, and at least 50% of our net sales will be donated to this worthy cause.

A Great Opportunity to Support Our Community

Feed the Hungry by Dining Out!! We earned several hundred dollars for the food bank during this event.

In conjunction with Pizzeria Uno in Fayetteville, the Harmony Katz Chorus and Upstate Blend (one of the areas leading barbershop quartets) are supporting a week long fund raiser for the Food Bank of CNY with at least two performances between November 30th through December 7th you can make a generous donation to the food bank just by eating at Uno's and they will donate 20% of your meal ticket. All you need to is mention the Food Bank when you go in. So get a great meal and help others in one enjoyable step. Performance dates will be posted later, and I know a barbershop chorus or quartet will make your meal even more enjoyable.

Click here to download tickets as a .pdf, print them, and distribute them in as many places as possible. Everyone who hands in the ticket between November 30th through December 7th when they come in for a meal will automatically be donating 20% of their dinner's cost to the food bank.

Lost in the 50's

It is with heart felt gratitude that the Harmony Katz thanks all the sponsors and individuals (including all those who attended) for the tremendous success of the "Lost in the 50's" show. You have helped feed the hungry and support the CNY community. We raise our voices in song to you.
