Originally named the Harmonia Circle, the group was organized in 1890 by Mrs. Lee L. Grumbine. Since 1897, Harmonia has been affiliated with the Pennsylvania Federation of Music Clubs. In 1905, it became a member of the National Federation of Music Clubs and in 1956 a part of the Past Presidents’ Assembly.

Events: Harmonia presents a variety of concerts from September through May that are open to the public and held at various community venues.
