The Friends of Harmony were founded in 1983 through a union of the East Aurora and Amherst, NY chapters. Since our inception, we have strived to provide the finest in a cappella entertainment in Western New York.
Our director, Brett Ransom, brings many years of choral directing and performing with the Red Blazer Men's Chorus and has quickly established himself as a well-respected leader in the barbershop style of singing.
Under Brett's direction, this past spring the chorus achieved its highest score in competition in over 8 years!
Our award-winning chorus has represented the Seneca Land District at Barbershop Harmony Society international competitions many times over the past 40+ years.
Through our focus on the Barbershop style of a cappella chorus and quartet singing, we provide educational, musical, charitable, and administrative opportunities to our membership.
We maintain an enjoyable and supportive atmosphere, well suited for people of all backgrounds and good musical singing ability.
Our members provide a strong talent base enabling an active performance schedule and a successful competition status within our Society.
We hail primarily from the City of Buffalo and its suburbs and perform all over Western New York. We consist of male and female singers of all ages with varied musical abilities.
