Barbershop harmony is music in a very pure form created with nothing but human voices coming together to create a rich and satisfying texture that is pleasing to the ears and invigorating to the soul. The barbershop style is unaccompanied vocal music characterized by four-part chords. The melody is sung by the lead, with the tenor harmonizing above the melody, the bass singing the lowest notes, and the baritone completing the chord.

About the Harmony Heritage Singers:

We are the Harmony Heritage Singers, a group of retired gentlemen who enjoy singing together in the distinctive barbershop style. Under our director, Bob Wachter, we rehearse twice a month during the day at Sherwood Regional Library in the Mount Vernon neighborhood. We also present about 25 performances a year, mostly at retirement communities and seniors groups in Northern Virginia, Maryland, and the District of Columbia.
