Harborside Harmony will provide the music for the final concert in Rockland Congregational Church’s 2010 Sounds of Second Sunday series. The concert will be held Sunday, May 16 at 3 p.m. in the sanctuary of the church, 180 Limerock St.

The women’s barbershop chorus has 18 members from Midcoast towns including Belfast, Union, Washington, St. George and Tenants Harbor. The group, which formed about nine years ago, meets for weekly rehearsals at the church and enjoys singing together and performing at festivals, concerts and weddings.

Harborside Harmony’s music covers a wide range, from traditional barbershop harmonies to blues, and includes old-time favorites and an audience sing-along. Director Oliver Curtis long has been an enthusiast of barbershop singing. He joined the Windjammers Chorus in the 1960s as a participant and became its musical director after a few years. His professional work as a construction site quality control inspector, however, interfered with regular attendance. After retirement, he became director of Harborside Harmony.

A donation of $8 is requested for admission. After the performance, refreshments will be served and the audience will have an opportunity to meet the Harborside Harmony singers.
