The Story of Essence of Harmony Choral Society
A Creative Ensemble
The Essence of Harmony Chorale Society was born of a need to create a presence of, space for, and medium through which singers of all skill levels can share their musical gifts with the Moorestown, NJ community, and the Burlington County community at large.
In 2018, after becoming more involved in the choral community nationwide, our founder, Cherisse Bonefont, saw a need for an inclusive community choir, where choral pieces written by composers of diversity can be highlighted. Pieces by African Americans, Women, and the LatinX community, to name a few. Outside of a few choirs within the state, there wasn’t space for singers to fully embrace all cultures, and showcase classical and contemporary voices. EHCS seeks to fill that void and start, not only a choir but a movement, where others might see and be inspired to do the same in their communities.
The Essence of Harmony Choral Society does not advocate, support, or practice discrimination based on race, sex, age, physical ability, sexual orientation, religious or political beliefs, marital or family status, national or ethnic origin. This applies to all EHCS programs and activities.
