Through the Harmony Foundation’s generous annual support of the Barbershop Harmony Society, we are able to provide grant opportunities that will affect powerful community impact. While our grant program has historically focused on youth outreach, we have plans to expand to include other innovative projects.
We offer scholarships to Harmony University for music educators, front-line music directors, and for people 25 and under who want to participate in our Next Generation Chorus.
What is Harmony University? It's a week-long education experience for singers, educators, directors, and leaders, located on the beautiful Belmont University campus in Nashville, Tennessee. You can even obtain CEU's for attending!
