Barbershop harmony chorus to perform ‘Holiday Magic’ Dec. 10


Harmony Heritage, a local chapter of Harmony, Incorporated, an international organization of female a cappella singers specializing in the barbershop harmony style, will welcome its sister chorus, NoteAble Blend, to perform “Holiday Magic,” an a cappella harmony celebration. The performance will begin at 2 p.m. on Sunday, December 10th at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church at 50 Park Place, Pawtucket and is open to the public. Parking is on the street and in the municipal lot on Park Place. A goodwill donation at the door will benefit St. Paul’s Church. 

We always look forward to bringing barbershop harmony to the community,” says Anne Diggle, Harmony Heritage chapter president, “and this year we are especially excited to be singing again with our sister chapter NoteAble Blend for the first time in 4 years! The choruses will perform a wide range of selections during this performance, and there’s something that’s sure to suit musical tastes of all kinds. We also have the pleasure and privilege to have a group of women who answered the call to be a part of our Christmas Chorus. They have spent eight weeks learning the music and are thrilled to be showcasing their talents with us.”

Featured guest quartets at the event will be Second Nature and Trade Secret, both award-winning men’s quartets from the Narragansett Bay Men’s Chorus (NBC) and the Barbershop Harmony Society (BHS).

Both the choruses and quartets sing 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.
