People usually go to the Great Wall of China to marvel at its expanse. The Alexandria Harmonizers went there to sing. And that’s just one of the many impressive destinations where the men’s a cappella group has performed. In its nearly 70-year history, the ensemble has shared signature four-part harmonies at the White House, Carnegie Hall, and Cologne Cathedral. But you don’t need to be a president or employee of the month to hear the choir sing—its members will gladly regale listeners at private parties and events.
