Bless This House

Our Friends In Harmony chorus is blessed to rehearse each Week at University United Methodist church. This past Sunday it was our turn to give back, as we sang for their Sunday morning services.

Check out our rendition of “Bless This House” here:

SAVE THE DATE Saturday afternoon, May 19, 2018

Appearing together for the first time in the great state of Texas, Instant Classic and GQ will be the headline quartets on the 3rd Annual “Friends In Harmony Spring Spectacular” show. Every barbershopper or Sweet Adeline in Texas will want to come to beautiful San Antonio to see this show.

Individually, these two quartets are awesome… performing together as an octet, they are beyond spectacular. For more details stay tuned to our Facebook page at

The National Anthem, Spurs vs Lakers

Got a minute to stand up and listen?

We had a blast singing and rooting for the Spurs as they took on the Lakers. It was amazing turn of events as we shed our FIH yellow for spurs colors just prior to marching to half court.

Here is a candid shot just before the lights went down and a video captured by a friend spurstshirts


For the record the Final Score Spurs 134, Lakers 94 — a 40 point victory!
We will be back March 1st 2017 against the Indiana Pacers. Hope to see you there.
