The Gulf Coast Harmonizers (Cape Coral Chapter) recently named Chris Owens as its director. And on June 3rd we had our first rehearsal under Chris’s guidance. Chris comes to us with extensive experience as a music director and barbershopper.

His credits include serving as director of Sarasota Chorus of the Keys for two years, frontline director of the Lemon Bay Chord Company in Englewood for eight years, and interim director of the Suncoast Statesmen for almost two years.

Chris is currently the band/choral/show choir director at Heron Creek Middle School in North Port and current director of Venetian Sweet Adeline Chorus.

Chris’s wife and daughter sing with the Toast of Tampa and his daughter is a member of Blaze who performed on our spring show.

Chris has music degrees from Palm Beach Atlantic College and Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary. Chris brings an enthusiasm and passion for barbershop harmony to our chorus and his desire for musical excellence will give us renewed momentum for the days ahead.
