Greg Kronlund 2016 Barbershopper of the Year
At the Harmony Kings annual Christmas Party/Installation, Greg Kronlund was named "Barbershopper of the Year for 2016!"
Greg's singing days go all the way back to third grade where he sang his first solo. Singing has always been a part of his life. His first "quartet” was a folk group called "The Trav'lers", that actually went on tour for 29 days.
For Greg's real job, he has been a disc jockey; worked for the NASCAR circuit in the Tri Cities, WA, and is currently working for Pierce College as a Program Assistant of PierceWorks! A Human Development/Career Transition Course.
It was back in the Tri cities where Greg sang with the Columbia River Chordsmen. Greg was also a member of the Rainier Valley Harmonizers and the Puyallup Valley Harmonizers prior to coming to the Harmony Kings. And we are so glad he came our way!!
Greg has been instrumental in many facets of our organization. He has taken on the role of President for two years. And he is able and willing to do it again for a third year. Greg has a way of getting things done. He does a fantastic job of setting goals for our organization and actually having them come to fruition.
Through Greg's steady leadership, Harmony Kings has grown in numbers; he has guided us in taking our example to "serve" the community. He has been instrumental in having our Harmony Kings host the Regional Leadership Academy. Greg is truly a valuable member of our Harmony Kings Family!
So it is with great honor and appreciation that we have named Greg Kronlund as our 2016 Barbershopper of the Year!!

Barbershopper of the Year 2015
Karl Kraber is our February 2017 Barbershopper of the Month
Federal Way Harmony Kings Chapter is pleased to recognize Karl Kraber as our February Barbershopper of the Month.
Karl began his Barbershop Career in 2011, singing with the Seattle Seachordsmen. However working in Olympia made it difficult to continue. As Karl settled into his new job in Olympia he met Harmony Kings' Membership VP Bill Esworthy, and the conversation turned to barbershop. Shortly afterward Karl joined Harmony Kings as a member of the bass section. Officially, Karl joined us in 2016, but has been highly involved in many aspects of Chapter Life.
Harmony Kings is recognizing Karl for the month of February for his incredible behind the scene work for Singing Valentines. The chapter has been looking for ways to expand our outreach to the community with Valentine performances and Karl became instrumental in helping bring in 46 Valentines this year. (Proceeds to benefit Harmony Xplosion)
Karl was one of the first to raise his hand when the Singing Valentine co-chairs needed. Karl took on a new task for the event by calling all of last year’s “senders” and “receivers” to see if they wanted to, have a repeat performance, or “get even”.
To top it off Karl has been working with the VP of Membership to design a new welcome package for guests and potential new members. Karl Kraber has rapidly become invaluable to the Chapter.
It is with pride that Harmony Kings present our February BOTM award to Karl Kraber.
