Harmony Heritage Chorus—the Pawtucket, RI chapter of Harmony, Incorporated, an international organization of female a cappella singers specializing in the barbershop harmony style—will lead a harmony performance and workshop at the William Hall Library on Wednesday, Apr 19 from 6:15-7:45 PM. Under the direction of Bob O’Connell, this participatory event will show how the four different voice parts – tenor, lead, baritone, and bass – work together, while showcasing the wide range of musical possibilities contained in this timeless style of a cappella singing. Members of the audience will be invited to try out the parts and to sing with us. Both audience and participants alike will share the joy that we experience in the unadorned and seamless blending of voices and the magic that occurs when those voices “lock and ring”. This program is free and open to the public.
