The Heart of Harmony Chorus is a men’s barbershop acapella chorus from West Allis, Wisconsin. We are looking for your help to give our singers a more professional appearance when we perform. Now in our 12th year of existence, Heart of Harmony participates in a spring and fall contest, an annual fall show, each Valentine’s Day with several quartets and other performances throughout the year.

Founded by Jack Ryback and others, the chorus has scored very well at contests for a group of its size.  In fact, our record in contest is solid and above the average score in the small to medium size competitive choruses.

To date the chorus members have personally purchased black blazers, black shirts with accompanying ties and black pants with black shoes.  We firmly believe that the upgrade in how we look will help us look more professional, bring better contest scores and bigger audiences.

As the Chapter prepares for 2018, we are looking to dramatically improve our look with a new tuxedo outfit, selected for its classic look and long-lasting style.  Our plan is to have the Chapter own each outfit, so as members come and go, we will have control over the look of the chorus.

Here is the profile of our selected tuxedo ensemble:

Pronto Uomo Black Modern Fit Tuxedo

This imported tuxedo includes pant, jacket, vest, shirt, shoes, accessories and alterations.  This last item is important as each member will look his best in a custom fit tuxedo.

A satin-faced notch lapel enhances the refined style of this all-black formalwear staple.

Flat-front trousers feature a satin waistband and stripe down the leg, adding polish to the timeless look.  Unfinished leg allows for tailoring to the exact length needed.

85% wool, 15% polyester, Modern Fit, Dry Clean only
Two-button jacket with Notch lapel and Side vents
The Numbers:

Estimated cost for each tuxedo outfit is $400.00

Plan is to purchase 25 outfits.  This number allows the current 22 members to look more polished, and allows the chapter to have a fewextras for new members as they join in the next year.

We thank you for your contribution!
