Harmony Heritage Chorus will lead a “Teach-In and Sing Out” at the Lincoln Public LIbrary
Pawtucket, Rhode Island, June, 2017 — 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 free harmony performance and workshop at the Lincoln Public Library on 145 Old River Road in Lincoln, RI. The workshop will take place on Thursday, June 22nd from 6:45 – 7:45 PM. This free, 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 selected songs with the chorus.
The Harmony Heritage chorus is an award-winning chapter of Harmony, Inc. that performs under the direction of Bob O’Connell, an accomplished director, performer and musician. “Participants don’t need to have a lot of musical experience, formal training, or even have the ability to read music,” says O’Connell. “Just bring a passion for singing, and we’ll deliver the tools to take that passion to the next level.”
Harmony Heritage chorus primarily sings in the barbershop harmony style, which traces its musical roots back to the turn of the 20th century. Today, barbershop harmony singers not only celebrate the classics, but also put their own spin on contemporary songs as well.
