The four-part harmony of barbershop music will take center stage at the annual Barbershop Sing at Sauder Village on Saturday, Aug. 27.
The event will feature the Men of Independence from Independence, Ohio, at 1 p.m. in Founder’s Hall. A member of the Barbershop Harmony Society, the music group has over 80 singers from Ohio, Pittsburgh, Pa., and surrounding areas. The group has competed regionally, nationally, and internationally, and has performed at games for the Cleveland Indians, the Cleveland Browns, and the Cleveland Cavaliers, and at events throughout northeast Ohio. The members have competed at the BHS International Convention chorus competitions for the past three years, and last July placed 11th among the top 28 choruses in the world. Their website can be visited at www.independencechapter.com.
“Hosting a late summer barbershop music concert has been a tradition at Sauder Village for many years,” said Kim Krieger, media relations specialist. “We look forward to having The Men of Independence share their talent at Sauder Village.”
