Barbershop Sing planned at Sauder Village


Sauder Village in Archbold will offer the smooth sound of four-part harmony with the annual Barbershop Sing featuring The Men of Independence of Ohio, Saturday, Aug. 24, 1 p.m., in Founders Hall.

The Men of Independence Chorus is comprised of approximately 80 male singers who enjoy both formal and informal quartet singing, as well as high-caliber chorus singing.

Chartered in 2003 as an Ohio chapter of the Barbershop Harmony Society, this award-winning group is dedicated to the high-quality singing of a cappella music, primarily in the barbershop style. The Men of Independence have been named the 18th finest chorus in the world.

“Hosting a late summer barbershop music concert has been a tradition at Sauder Village for many years,” said Kim Krieger, public relations.

Other upcoming Sauder Village events in September include the Monarchs and More Family Fun Day, Home School Appreciation Days, Celebrate our Artisans, Apple Week, Vintage Base Ball Tournament, and Fiber Arts Fest. October events include Transportation Exploration, Fall on the Farm/Scout Day, Community Health Day, Explore the Crafts and the annual Woodcarver’s Show & Sale! A complete schedule of 2019 events is available online at www.saudervillage.org.
