Harmonium Choral Society’s mission is to perform a diverse repertoire of choral music at a high artistic level and advance the choral arts through education and community partnerships. Based in Morris County, Harmonium isr ecognized for musical excellence and eclectic programming. A third of Harmonium’s singing members are music educators. Dr. Anne Matlack, artistic director of Harmonium since 1987, is also the organist and choir director at Grace Episcopal Church in Madison. She was named Outstanding Arts Professional by the Arts Council of the Morris Area in 2003. In February 2010, the chorus was selected to perform for the Eastern Division Convention of the American Choral Directors Association in Philadelphia. In July 2011, Harmonium sang for the opening convocation of the American Guild of Organists Region II Convention.
Harmonium sponsors commissions, musicianship workshops, a high school student composition contest, and an Outreach Chorus that performs in schools, nursing homes and other venues. They are in their third year of sponsoring Morristown’s Neighborhood House Children’s Chorus. Chorus America awarded Harmonium its Education Outreach Award in 2009, and Harmonium was a finalist for the 2010 American Prize for the Arts.
More information about Harmonium and its 2011-2012 season is available at or by calling 973-538-6969.
Funding has been made possible in part by grants from the Arts Council of the Morris Area through the New Jersey State Council on the Arts/Department of State, a Partner Agency of the National Endowment for the Arts. Funding for the musicians is graciously provided by the Frank and Lydia Bergen Foundation.
