Perfect Harmony Supports Charities
Perfect Harmony Supports Charities
Periodically, Perfect Harmony Chorus chooses a local charity that we know is in need of support to receive a donation from us. A charity is suggested by a chorus member and an amount is approved by our board. The Village House of Bella Vista was chosen in December to receive a donation of $200.00. Carolyn Fliger accepts the check from Baritone singer, Barb Compton.
Perfect Harmony is committed to giving back to our community by donating to local charities such as the Shepherd's Food Pantry and Restoration Village. Instead of a Christmas project, Dee Fitzgerald, Chairwoman of the Restoration Village project, has recommended that we do a Thanksgiving project...socks for kids of all ages, both boys and girls, and panties for women. Dee organizes a project twice a year with the staff of Restoration Village to determine what items are needed. Once she has collected items from the Chorus she delivers them to the Village. The staff and the guests staying at the Village greet her with open arms.
Perfect Harmony Women's Barbershop Chorus meets every Monday from
4-5:30pm in the choir room of the United Lutheran Church of Bella Vista.
Perfect Harmony Women’s Barbershop Chorus is a fun loving, energetic women’s a cappella group in Bella Vista and we are seeking new members to join our group. Our chorus is not only a musical outlet for all women, but also an opportunity to be part of a sisterhood through singing and a love of music. There are no try outs, no previous musical experience necessary to join. Women’s Barbershop Choruses have four sections; Lead and Tenor which would be for higher voices and Baritone and Bass for those with lower voices. We will find a part to fit your voice. Many of our women bring recorders to rehearsals to learn new songs so it doesn’t matter if you can read music or not. The chorus has several numbers memorized and ready to perform for any event.
Our current chorus has 25 active members and stays busy year-round performing for various clubs, organizations and events in Bella Vista, Bentonville and Rogers. In addition to giving free concerts we give back to our communities by helping to support local charities. Currently, members donate suggested items for Restoration Village twice a year and have a monthly food drive to help support the Shepherd’s Food Pantry provided by the Bella Vista Lutheran church.
Perfect Harmony was started in 1999 by director Karen Frankenfeld when she was asked to start a women’s barbershop chorus in Bella Vista after the Sweet Adeline chorus lost its director. Frankenfeld’s directing experience includes 38 years of teaching high school music in Missouri and Iowa as well as directing Sweet Adeline choruses and church choirs. The vision of the newly formed chorus was to have a group of women that would have fun singing and entertaining others.
Karen Frankenfeld researches a wide variety of music that is arranged in the four part barbershop style before selecting a song for the chorus to sing. The chorus’s portfolio may include classics from the 20’s, 30’s and 40’s, modern pop, seasonal songs, patriotic, gospel and novelty numbers. Some songs give her an opportunity to add a special touch to the arrangement and to let the women have a little fun with it for audience appeal.For more information or to book an event, call Director Karen Frankenfeld 479 876 7204.
