Harmony Heritage Chorus, a proud chapter of Harmony Incorporated, will host the international organization’s 2015 Area 2 Contest and Convention (AC&C). For four days in April, the chapter will join other ladies’ choruses and quartets from all over the Northeastern US, Quebec and part of Ontario in an all a cappella competition and celebration.
The event will take place from April 23-26 at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Warwick, RI, and the contests will be held on Friday and Saturday afternoons at the West Warwick High School. Choruses and quartets with qualifying scores will go on to compete at the International Contest and Convention (IC&C) to be held in November in Verona, New York.
Harmony Heritage Chorus, under the direction of Bob O’Connell, has members hailing from all over Rhode Island and Southeastern Massachusetts. The organization is a local chapter of Harmony, Inc., an international organization whose purpose is to empower all women through education, friendship and a cappella singing in the barbershop style. .
The chorus holds open rehearsals on Tuesday evenings from 7:15 – 9:45 PM at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church on 50 Park Place in Pawtucket, RI. Visitors are welcome to come and listen, and women are welcome to join chorus members on the risers.

“This candle shines with the Light of Harmony. Although it is burning with the Light of our Membership, the Light of our Leadership and the Light of our Music, it shines apart. For true Harmony belongs to no one, but to everyone. It shines as a beacon, perpetually, for those who would lift their voices above mere song in the true spirit and light of Harmony, Incorporated.”
