The Humboldt Harmonaires is Eureka California's
chapter of The Barbershop Harmony Society.
Barbershop is a form of vocal
music, which originated in the swing era (1935 - 1946) and has had a huge influence on popular music. The Society is an
international organization of barbershop-style singers, with more than 800 chapters world wide, "leading the cause of encouraging vocal music in our schools and communities."
Humboldt Harmonaires have been a community asset for more than 56 years on California's North Coast. We sing at festivals,
grand openings, the Redwood Coast Jazz Festival, Crabs Baseball
season openers, The Humboldt County Fair and other community events.
Each year we present two major shows: our Spring Show in Eureka and
our Fall Beer and Peanuts Shows in both Fortuna and Arcata. Our member
quartets make dozens of appearances throughout the area each year.
Humboldt Harmonaires have awarded nearly seventeen thousand dollars in
college scholarships to talented local high school music students. The
$1,000 Scholarship recipient is introduced each year at our Spring
Show. Also at the show, local music students are offered a chance to
perform for our audience.Click on the link "Upcoming Performances" for dates and times of upcoming performances.
