Harmony University

Thank you for joining us in New Orleans! Visit soon for 2024 Registration Information!

What is Harmony University (or HU)? Harmony University is an experience you will never forget! Whether you’re a music educator hoping to learn more about sharing a cappella with your students, a long-time barbershopper, or even a person brand new to the style, we’ve got options for all ages ranges and experiences. Attend as an individual or with your quartet or chorus for our daily coaching sessions. Hone your director, arranging, or coaching skills. You can even learn how to add barbershop harmony to your music curriculum and earn Graduate or CEU credits while you’re at it! You’ll learn, be inspired, and walk away with friends from around the world who all have one thing in common: the love of a ringing barbershop chord! Come learn why Harmony University is more than a week-long music conference: it’s a week of smiles, joy, singing, fun, inclusion, harmony, and love in the barbershop bubble!

Event Overview


“Just wanted to thank you so much for this wonderful opportunity to explore barbershop music in such an amazingly supportive environment! I appreciate the experience so much and will cherish it among my dearest memories. Never did I think wanting to go to Harmony U would introduce me to so much more within the world of barbershop, and finally attending the event that started it all for me was so fulfilling!”

“Singing summer camp with my friends? Spiritual retreat? A weeklong therapy session? #harmonyU has been all of that - and so much more (as usual)! So many friends, old and new. So many tags. So much silliness! SO MUCH LOVE!! Yes, I am sad it’s over. But I also feel so incredibly blessed that I got to do this.”

“This was such an incredible week, and I am so thankful to have had the opportunity to attend. Thank you, thank you, thank you!”
