Dear Friends,
greetings from Sweet Harmony Barbershop Chorus and Quartet. Just writing to let you know that we are back rehearsing each week (masks and all), and that we are really looking forward to performing again once the circumstances allow.
You can be sure that our aim is to be ready with Songs and Smiles for whenever our friends feel comfortable about inviting us along to their functions once more.
The above is a follow-up to Sweet Harmony Barbershop Chorus and Quartet informing you early 2020 that in view of the situation regarding the Coronavirus pandemic all future functions and practices were suspended.
Please contact the sources shown below if you wish to discuss possible future functions.
 
Be safe and best regards.

Sweet Harmony Barbershop Chorus
is a male voice chorus formed in 2012, shortly followed by their quartet Take 4, singing barbershop style versions of popular songs. We perform at numerous events for local groups mainly in the Falkirk area but also further afield in the Forth Valley area. We are friendly and informal, focussed on offering performances of pleasant enjoyable barbershop chorus singing accompanied with fun and some individual performances
Come and join us                                 
We rehearse each Monday from 7pm to 8.30pm in Larbert East Church, Kirk Wynd, Stenhousemuir. There is no audition and you do not have to sight read, as we learn using teaching CDs. So if you are male, can hold a note and are interested in joining a relaxed informal and fun musical group, or wish to learn more about us.   Call 07715 122111 or email dave3glen@gmail.com
