This event should be on every barbershopper’s “bucket list.” Coming to Harmony University means you can enjoy a potpourri of classes offered, all geared to help you grow in your understanding of music, your performance, and our techniques for singing, directing, arranging, and even tuning! During your meal times, sit with your society hero’s and listen in, ask questions, and even take a quick selfie! Harmony University classes are enlightening, engaging, and fun, and the extra curricular activities, the late night tagging, and all the ice cream you can eat will make you long for more hours in the day.

Harmony University is amazing.

Every lunch will have elective offerings for junkies that simply can’t get enough. A Gold Medal Hour with Musical Island Boys, how to be a great tenor/lead/bari/bass, an open mic stage for quartets to strut their stuff. 1 to 2 PM Monday to Friday. No sign up…just show up.

Every morning learn a new song, a new tag, and more about your craft in the General Sessions

Honors chorus, under the direction of Aaron Dale! Click here for more details…

Monday through Thursday, attend our 90 minute master class offerings. Watch arrangers work out difficulty passages side by side, watch coaches under glass work with groups and explain the coaching process. No sign up…just show up.

On Friday, watch the parade of quartets and cheer on your favorites

Learn how to coach like the people at HU! Our coaching observer and coaching apprentice program is one of our most highly rated program. Fill out the online application.

Office hours! That’s right, all our faculty will set aside 1 hours a day for you to seek them out and get extra help, answer questions, or just fawn.

Want to be part of a quartet? Why not join our harmony brigade class…it’s so big it’s the Extreme Harmony Brigade. This has an extra cost associated. Download the online application.

30 minute private lessons Tuesday-Friday in conducting, arranging, and singing. You may sign up for more than one lesson if you wish. Lessons are $25 each, and are part of the registration process.

On Saturday, take what you learned to Nashville in multiple venues, accompanied by a coach with feedback. Then do the same performance in another venue, and get more feedback. Students not in the performing arts college can sing with the Harmony college chorus on our general session music, or just spend the day visiting beautiful downtown Nashville.

On Saturday night, enjoy the show of all shows, ending with our 2014 champs, Musical Island Boys. [/raw]
