Do you like to Sing?

If you like to sing, if you like to laugh, if you think you’d enjoy making beautiful a cappella music in a relaxed, fun-filled setting, please consider visiting the Friends In Harmony (Men) or the Harmony Belles (Women) choruses.

Both choruses meet in the magnificent second-floor choir rehearsal facility at University Methodist Church at 5084 DeZavala Road, at the corner of Vance Jackson. The 120-voice men’s chorus meets from 6:45 to 8:45 on Mondays. The rapidly growing women’s chorus, now an inclusive group of about 100 women of all ages, rehearses at the same times on Thursdays.

No previous experience is necessary. No auditions are required. Actually, well over 85% of our singers are enjoying their first introduction to harmonizing in the four-part barbershop style. Come try it… and bring a friend or two with you!

    This group’s philosophy of Fellowship . . . Fun . . . Food . . . Singing is a winning formula. Went to my first meeting and I felt welcomed and appreciated. I was impressed by the level of singing from the 70 – 80 singers. Artie is a gem and sets the tone for this “merry bunch” with his boundless energy and positive vibes.

    I had a wonderful time singing with the Harmony Belles. Wish I would have found them a long time ago. But very grateful I found them now. Wonderful group of ladies with a great director. Fun for all. Thank you.

    ALWAYS there is a welcoming atmosphere at the rehearsals. It is a joyful, almost playful, group of immediate friends. All are caring, and actually sound fantastic under the leadership of the incredible Artie Dolt!
    Thank you to his welcoming wife Diana who supplies delicious snacks and keeps us all on time too?

  • Delia Finley

    I’m seating at my computer learning the beautiful songs and practicing my singing 🙂 LOL
    Will be seeing you all in the next rehearsal.

    Awesome time at my first rehearsal! Made to feel welcome by so many. Personal call by Artie Dolt made my decision to join the chorus! Singing together is good for the soul! Can’t wait for next week!


    Would like information about joiningHarmony Belles group. I don’t for my own enjoyment, but I LOVE the barbershop style!! I was active in choir as a child, but that was a million years ago…

    Went to my first rehearsal last night (2/24/2020) and it was outstanding. Have been singing barbershop music for many years and this was the first rehearsal in a long time I felt completely at home. From the beginning Artie and the gang made me feel I was really appreciated and they were glad to see me. The music was sensational and we spend time singing not pontificating about things that really didn’t matter. Definitely will come back for another session.
