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 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 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 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 from the City of Buffalo, Western New York and Ontario, Canada. We consist of singers of all ages with varied musical abilities under Director Mr. Marshall Kelkenberg and our Assistant Director, Meredith Zimmer.
