HARMONY HERITAGE CHORUS BEGINS OPEN REHEARSALS ON JANUARY 9, 2018

Pawtucket, Rhode Island, December 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 hold open rehearsals every Tuesday evening, beginning on January 9th.   Female singers of all ages and musical backgrounds are encouraged to attend.  Rehearsal begins at 7:15 PM at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church, 50 Park Place in Pawtucket, RI.

“Almost every one of our members came for the music, but each of us stayed for the camaraderie and satisfaction that comes with contributing to an organization like the Harmony Heritage chorus,” says Anne Diggle, chapter president “We welcome women who like to sing, even if it’s just in the privacy of their cars or their showers.”

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. “It’s important to note that barbershop harmony is often considered the ‘every man’s’ a cappella,” says O’Connell. “Members don’t need to have a lot of musical experience, formal training, or even have the ability to read music. As long as she loves to sing, we have the tools to help her find success in barbershop harmony.”

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.  For more information about Harmony Heritage chorus, visit http://www.harmonyheritage.org or call Barbara-Ann MacIntosh at 401-560-0073 or joyhi@cox.net OR Mary Levasseur at 508-930-5362 or at  marylevasseurc21@comcast.net.
