Love and Harmony

The Esssex County 4 Barbershop QuartetCome enjoy a relaxing mid-day, mid-week tea at the historic Custom House Maritime Museum with splendid sandwiches, sumptuous sweets and richly brewed English tea, served along with soothing classical music and enriching cultural and historical insights.

On this special day devoted to love, we host a visit by the renowned Essex County 4, who will sing us through a set of Valentine's Day harmonies for an up-close-and-personal demonstration of this vibrant American melting pot cultural tradition.

If you've never heard the barbershop style -- live -- you're in for a treat!  The lead sings the melody, the tenor harmonizes above the melody, the bass sings the lowest harmonizing notes, while the baritone completes the chord, Built on simple melodies with understandable lyrics sung a cappella style in four-parts, make it among the most challenging and rewarding accomplishments of a vocal ensemble.  Barbershop harmony is capable of producing overtone vibrations that create a resonant ring truly unique to this form of music!
