Local Barbershop Chorus Will Host World Singing Day Event at The Warwick Mall


Harmony Heritage invites all to raise their voices in celebration on October 19th – Save the date!
[Pawtucket, RI, June 24, 2024] — Harmony Heritage, the Pawtucket, RI chapter of Harmony, Incorporated, an international organization of female a cappella singers specializing in the barbershop harmony style, is thrilled to announce that it will be hosting a World Singing Day Event at 1 pm on Saturday, October 19th at the Warwick Mall, 400 Bald Hill Road in Warwick, RI. This event is open to people of all ages, backgrounds and singing abilities.

“After hearing about World Singing Day, we knew we had to be a part of it,” says Anne Diggle, chapter president. “Singing is a driving force in the lives of our chorus members. We recognize the positive effect it has on our lives and well being. We felt that this is an opportunity to gather with people who also see that singing together can be empowering and uplifting, so it was worth making sure that it happens here. We are proud to be hosting the event and hope that we’ll have a great response to our call for singers!”
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.
