Pawtucket, Rhode Island, December 1, 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 be special guests at St. Kevin’s Annual Parish Christmas Concert, to be held at the church on Friday, December 8th at 7 PM. The concert is free and open to the public, but audience members are encouraged to bring canned food donations for the church’s food pantry. St. Kevin’s Church is located at 333 Sandy Lane in Warwick, RI.
“We are excited to be able to perform again at St. Kevin’s annual concert," says chapter president Anne Diggle. "We thoroughly enjoyed last year’s concert and are looking forward to being a part of the festivities again this year.”
The event, a popular annual tradition featuring the choirs from St. Kevin’s and St. Rita’s parishes in Warwick, will also include talented soloists singing Christmas favorites and a little Broadway, cast members performing music from Granite Theater’s production of Jesus Christ Superstar, a surprise guest or two or three, and even Santa, direct from the North Pole!
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 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.
