Vision and Mission Statement:

“The Ambassadors of Harmony will be recognized as the highest quality and most entertaining choral organization in the St. Louis metropolitan area and the Barbershop Harmony Society. Our mission is to educate our membership in order to continually improve in vocal quality, performance, and personal fulfillment” in a cappella singing. When we perform, our goal is to give a gift that will change the lives of the people in our audience.

The mission, stated above, has created an environment in which the chorus continues to strive for musical and performing excellence. The Ambassadors of Harmony chorus has an extensive a cappella repertoire, including contemporary, Broadway, gospel, folk, and light jazz music, and we maintain, as well, a continuing commitment to preserving and singing in the barbershop harmony style. Our music appeals to audiences of all ages.

In July of 2009, under the direction of Jim Henry, The Ambassadors of Harmony won the International Chorus Championship held in Anaheim California, acheiving the highest score ever recorded. They had previously won the championship in 2004. In July of 2007, The Ambassadors of Harmony came very close to a gold medal in a first place tie with the Westminster Chorus at the Barbershop Harmony Society International Chorus Competition in Denver Colorado. Per the Society's tie-breaking rules, they were awarded the second-place Silver Medal. In 2008. the chorus again took the Silver Medal at the International competition in Nashville, Tennessee, missing a win by three tenths of a percentage point.

The Ambassadors of Harmony Chorus won First Place in the chorus competition for the 5-state Central States District of the Barbershop Harmony Society (SPEBSQSA, Inc) in 14 consecutive attempts, the most recent win occuring this past October.

The chorus has acquired four 4th Place, five 3rd Place Medals in International chorus competition, as well as the 2009/2004 Gold and 2007/2008 Silver Medals.
