Careful and extensive research revealed that the Harmony
Grits started it all off in 1990 when a group of men began singing together.
Their music was so inspiring that, not to be outdone, a group of women formed
in 1992 to sing together under the banner of the Village Voices.

By 2018, the merger of the Harmony Grits and the Village
Voices was complete – with Bylaws and shared leadership. Today, the Fearrington
Village Singers has members whose combined musical experience is incomparable
in the area surrounding Fearrington Village. Rehearsing together by gender, in
small groups, and jointly, the Singers present our biannual concerts to
standing ovations at Galloway Ridge Chapin Auditorium.
We, the Board, in celebration of our 25th Jubilee Year,
2023, proudly unveil our new logo!
