Harmony Heritage will perform at the Warwick Public Library on February 23rd
Harmony Heritage chorus, a Southern New England chapter of Harmony, Incorporated, an international organization of female a cappella singers specializing in the barbershop harmony style, will perform “A Celebration of Harmony” on Sunday, February 23rd at the Warwick Public Library, 600 Sandy Lane in Warwick, RI. The performance will take place at 2:00 PM in the large meeting room and is free and open to the public. The chorus will show how the four different voice parts – tenor, lead, baritone, and bass – work together to produce those special ringing chords, while showcasing the wide range of musical possibilities contained in this timeless style of a cappella singing.
The Harmony Heritage chorus is an award-winning chapter of Harmony, Inc. and performs under the direction of Bob O’Connell, an accomplished director, performer, arranger and musician. Harmony Heritage 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.
