Local Barbershop Harmony Singers Bring Joy to Holiday Season

Harmony Heritage Members Offer Classic Caroling with a Contemporary Twist


Harmony Heritage women’s chorus, the Pawtucket, RI award winning chapter of Harmony, Incorporated, an international organization of female a cappella singers specializing in the barbershop harmony style, will once again bring joy to the holiday season with three special performances:

As a guest chorus at La Salette Shrine, 947 Park Street in Attleboro, MA at 1 pm on Saturday, December 3rd. They will join Narragansett Bay Chorus and Coastline Show Chorus, as well as many guest quartets. Admission is $15. Information on tickets can be found at https://www.singnbc.com/
At the Warwick Public Library, 600 Sandy Lane, Warwick, RI at 2 pm on Sunday, December 4th.
This is a free public performance.
At the Westerly Public Library, 44 Broad Street, Westerly, RI at 2 pm on Saturday, December 17th.
This is a free public performance.

“Our holiday program has always been one of the highlights of our year,” says Kim Thompson, chapter president, “and we are so glad to once again be sharing this music after almost 3 years. The Harmony Heritage chorus will bring to its audiences a memorable performance that’s sure to be a staple in their holiday traditions.”

The chorus puts a contemporary spin on classic caroling, and the performance will blend traditional holiday tunes with an entertaining mix of other repertoire.

The Harmony Heritage chorus 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.
