Harmony Singers is a non-profit professionally directed community chorus whose objective is to bring together people who love to sing and audiences who are seeking low-cost, quality local entertainment. It was founded in 1965 by a small group of choral music lovers who first met as choristers in the Packanack section of Wayne. Enthusiastic acceptance by singers and audience alike has enabled us to continue for over 50 years.
The singers, about 40 men and women, vary in age and musical abilities. All voice parts are represented: Soprano, Mezzo-soprano, Alto, Tenor, Baritone, and Bass.
The organization is run by a volunteer Board and committees. All members are expected to help out in some way.
Our Music Director
Daniel Mullens grew up in Upstate New York, but shortly after graduating college he moved across the country to Colorado. He spent the formative years of his career developing skills as a teacher, conductor, and collaborative pianist. He graduated with his master’s degree in conducting from the University of Northern Colorado in 2012 and was involved with numerous music-related organisations along the Front Range, including Boulder Opera, Colorado Symphony Orchestra, and Voices West (a small community choir based out of Littleton). He was also the organist at King of Glory Lutheran Church in Arvada and taught private voice and piano lessons in the Denver area.
After nearly a decade in Colorado, Daniel moved back to the East Coast in 2017.
Daniel is currently the music director at Packanack Community Church in Wayne and works with a variety of local theatre groups and ensembles. He is a highly versatile musician whose resume reflects a wide range of both opera and musical theatre productions; recent performances include The Wiz, Pippin, Carrie: The Musical, Fiddler on the Roof andYou’re A Good Man, Charlie Brown.
