Harmony Heritage Hosts New Singers Night

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 host a New Singers Night on Tuesday, September 10th.   Female singers of all ages and musical backgrounds are encouraged to attend the event, which will take place at 7:00 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 Kim Thompson, chapter president “We welcome women who like to sing, even if it’s just in the privacy of their cars or their showers, to come learn a little about a musical organization that marries novice singers with experienced performers and has multiple generations standing shoulder-to-shoulder as they share their love for barbershop harmony.”

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.”

New singers attending will learn how the different voice parts blend to make that unique barbershop sound, will enjoy vocal demonstrations by both the chorus and quartets, and will have an opportunity for singing on the risers with the chorus.  Parking for this event will be in on street and in the municipal lot on Park Place, both a short walk from the church.

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.
