Here is the list of Santa Clarita arts-related events for May 8 – 11:

May 8: Harmony Open House at Valley Oak Village Apartments
Time: 7:30 p.m.

The Men of Harmony Barbershop Chorus invites singers and those who need entertainment to visit at their 2018 Open House, where they will demonstrate the wonderful sound of 4-Part harmony with both the men’s chorus and quartets. No other singing groups sound like a Barbershop Quartet for good reason. First, the acapella sound of voices is unique by itself. Second, the chords blending together make the songs so much fun for everyone. The musical styles represented by the group range from light gospel to doo wop to broadway and the Beach Boys!

Light refreshments will be served.
