On to Halifax


Harmony Heritage Chorus, the Southern New England chapter of Harmony, Incorporated, an international organization of female a cappella singers specializing in the barbershop harmony style, recently earned regional recognition and qualified for a spot in the Silver Division at Harmony, Inc.'s international competition, which will be held in Halifax, Nova Scotia later this year. The chorus also won the Rising Star

Award for showing the greatest improvement in scoring over the previous year. Harmony Heritage, based in Pawtucket, competed with nine other choruses in Harmony, Inc.'s Area 2, which encompasses all of the New England states plus Montreal. The competition took place in Devens, Massachusetts in April, and participants earning a score of a certain threshold are qualified to participate in the international competition of Harmony, Inc. choruses in November. With approximately 20 members, Harmony Heritage is directed by Bob O'Connell of Pawtucket, The chorus presented two songs from the 1940s at the area contest to earn its qualification, "We'll Meet Again" and "That

Old Feeling.” These selections are a small sample of the chorus's extensive repertoire, which is ideally suited for a wide range of audiences and events. To learn more about the chorus's upcoming performance schedule, visit www.harmonyheritage.org. (Submitted photo)
