The Harmony Club of Binghamton Celebrates 90 years
Ninety years never sounded so good. The Harmony Club of Binghamton celebrated a milestone anniversary today in Endwell.
It did so in style with a 1920's-era fashion show. The club began in 1925 with 12 women but today it has 90 members, both men and women. It performs all kinds of music including symphonic, operatic, and even popular. It meets monthly at local churches, with meetings open to the public.
"We have amateur musicians, we have professional musicians, we have people who have been professionals and have retired. I want to emphasize it's purely for the love of music and anyone can join us," said Harmony Club Co-President Joan Englehart.
Original membership in the club was 25 cents in 1925. Running late to a meeting would cost a five-cent fine. Membership now is $25 with all money going to the group's scholarship fund.
