Our new Fearrington Village Singers logo conveys our message: we sing together joyfully, we honor those who have sung before us, and we welcome those who will sing with us in the future.

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.

Examination of past programs showed evidence of MUCH music being enjoyed in and around the Village for many years. The Barn was the perfect venue – except when the music was drowned out by rain hitting the tin roof! Historical program records indicated that in 1998 the two groups began regularly singing together under the name “Fearrington Village Singers.” Hence, we are calling 1998 the year of our founding.

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!

Our new logo was designed by Singer Kristen Skipper.
