Berks Encore’s Horizon Singers Choral Group has been sharing their love of music and their zest for life for more than 25 years. The group rehearses Monday mornings from 9:30 – 10:45 am at Berks Encore-Reading, singing four-part harmony on a wide variety of standards, gospel, inspirational, patriotic and holiday selections. Off-street parking is available at the center.

A History of Harmony
