The Laurel Harmony chapter of Sweet Adelines will hold an open house in celebration of Barbershop Music Appreciation Day.

In celebration of Barbershop Music Appreciation Day, the Laurel Harmony chapter of Sweet Adelines will hold an open house to share its singing style with the public.

The Greensburg-based group’s members will demonstrate their a cappella four-part harmony of barbershop-style singing from 7:30-9 p.m. July 11 at Trinity United Church of Christ, 139 N. Main St., Greensburg.

Women of all ages are welcome to sing with the chorus, members state.

According to Sweet Adelines International, the singing style has its roots in African-American improvisational singing of the 1800s.

Founded in Tulsa, Okla., on July 13, 1945, Sweet Adelines International is committed to advancing a cappella singing in the barbershop style through opportunities in education, performance and competition.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
