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.
This award-winning chorus has represented the Seneca Land District at Barbershop Harmony Society international competitions many times over the past 30+ years. We are currently AAA-level champions in the Seneca Land District of the Barbershop Harmony Society.
Through our focus on the Barbershop style of male a cappella chorus and quartet singing, we provide educational, musical, charitable, and administrative opportunities to our membership.
We maintain an enjoyable yet supportive atmosphere, well suited for men of good character 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 from communities in Western New York and Ontario, Canada. We consist of men of all ages with varied musical abilities and represent a diverse mix of professions and are under the capable direction of our newly hired director Mr. Marshall Kelkenberg and our vocal coach and assistant director, Meredith Zimmer.
