  • Denmead Twinning Association Concert
  •  Date Posted: Mon, 15 Apr 2024
    We were asked by the Denmead Twinning Association to put on a concert to help them raise funds (profits shared with our own charity fundraising), so on Saturday 13th April we gave them a treat in the wonderful acoustic of All Saints Church, Denmead. We sang and performed to a very appreciative audience, and happily joined in with the wonderful interval buffet provided by the Twinning Association members - the best ever! In Deryn's absence, I don't think anyone took any photographs, but we looked and sounded splendid anyway. ?

    Our host wrote a note of thanks to us:
    "We were mightily impressed with Folks in Harmony who are clearly a very talented group of  singers and more!! Everyone on our side were delighted that you came and gave us such a varied, professional and fun programme of music. Please pass our heartfelt thanks to your colleagues for a wonderful evening of entertainment.""

    Christmas Punch Show
    Another fabulous evening strutting our stuff to a packed audience at St Wilfreds Church in Cowplain. We performed our Christmas songs and some other fun stuff too. Connor played two Ola Gjeilo pieces on the piano, Kevin sang a lovely solo, Jan gave us a beautifully narrated Christmas poem, and a new quartet made their first appearance. Lots of good things happening!

    Cheque presentation to The Rosemary Foundation
    Last Thursday we were proud to present a cheque for £2250 to our 2022/3 charity, The Rosemary Foundation - so we made a bit of a song and dance about it with an Open Evening for friends, old and new. We performed some of our new songs, and enjoyed stomping along to our sea shanty group, The Barnacles.

    A Summer Sensation!
    A fabulous Summer Sensation show raised funds for this year's charity: the Rosemary Foundation. As well as our new songs, the show featured soloists Kevin Bunting and Connor Judd, our sea shanty group The Barnacles, and our MC and entertainer Ollie Butler. We all had a lovely evening and from what we hear ... so did our guests.
  • Folks In Harmony celebrates 10th birthday!
  •  Date Posted: Mon, 12 Sep 2022

    It's hard to believe that Folks In Harmony has just celebrated our 10th birthday! Back in 2012, three friends and former members of a ladies chorus decided to try something new, so created an a cappella choir and invited some men to join. We started singing in a sitting room and quickly grew to 18 members for our first official practice in August 2012. Needing a larger venue, we hired Bedhampton Community centre, where we’ve been ever since. Now we have over 40 members - and a lot more friends! We've won competitions and performed around our local community, and we stage two concerts a year to raise money for local charities. Happy Birthday to Us ?

    At our Open Evening on 8th September, FIH announced a donation of £1000 to our nominated charity, Solent Mind. The money was raised during a difficult period with limited performance opportunities. We're delighted to support this worthy cause.
