"We love to have fun and sing together!"
Harmony of the Gorge is a group of women singers dedicated to achieving musical excellence and personal growth by providing quality education and opportunities to perform and promote the art form of four-part acappella harmony.

Harmony of the Gorge (formerly named Hood River Valley) became an officially chartered chapter in Sweet Adelines International in December, 1983. We are part of the international organization with approximately 23,000 women singers committed to advancing the musical art form of barbershop harmony through education and performance.

We have members from the Columbia River Gorge area who gather in Hood River every Tuesday (Thursdays, as of Jan. 10,2019) to share an evening of four-part harmony, musical challenge and fun. Singers come from Hood River, Carson, Lyle, Odell, White Salmon, Stevenson, North Bonneville, Parkdale, Klickitat, Dallesport and The Dalles.

We have earned many awards in our region (Oregon, SW Washington, Idaho and Montana) including: First Place Small Chorus, Second Place Overall, Most Improved Chorus, Small Chorus Award, Overall Third Place, Overall Fourth Place, and the traveling trophy for most attendance at regional educational events. 

We were thrilled to earn the "Harmonize the World" award in 2012 -- which recognizes our chorus' and our members' involvement in and around our communities in the Mid-Columbia area.
