The vision continues–using the barbershop singing (and listening) experience as a therapeutic tool by which we confront historic and contemporary issues of race in our country. Join us forRace and #RealTalk!
The history of racial exclusion in the barbershop community was a reflection of the reality that manifested in society at that stage of our cultural evolution in America. HALO believes that it can be a unique change agent, by which the barbershop community and the nation as a whole can press forward toward becoming a truly united people. As we utilize and engage in the unique style of harmonic progression in barbershop singing to guide our discourse as well as the phenomenon of social bonding and trust that group singing facilitates, we can invest our energy in a difficult process of healing, forgiveness, reconciliation, and resolutions for peace.
Sessions for this program will take place Saturdays from 12:30-2:30, bi-weekly at Centennial United Methodist Church 8 W 2nd Street Frederick, MD starting February 3, 2018 (closing date TBD).
We welcome all people with all perspectives and open minds and hearts to learn from one another and lean into what we hope will be a continuation of our social evolutionary process. Thanks for your interest!
