Pawtucket-based, Harmony Heritage women’s a cappella chorus, is a diverse group of over 30 women all ages and walks of life from many communities throughout the southern Massachusetts and Rhode Island area. Harmony Heritage, now in its 20th year, has performed throughout Rhode Island and southern Massachusetts at festivals, sporting events and social activities.
Many chorus members have a long history of performing music in keeping with the style of barbershop music. One chapter member is charter members of the parent organization, Harmony, Incorporated, established in 1959, in Providence. Harmony Heritage chartered in January, 2001 – a merger of The Harmonettes of Attleboro, MA and Rhode Island Sound of Cranston, RI. The chorus has enjoyed singing and performing a variety of music from standards to gospel songs to more modern pieces.
Prior to the pandemic, Harmony Heritage enjoyed traveling to and competing in our area contest each year in April, working toward qualification for the international contest in November. While these in-person contests have been suspended for the safety of all, the spirit of competition lives on in the 2020 Virtual International Convention scheduled to take place on November 6 & 7.
