Youth In Harmony program

The Bucks County Country Gentlemen have established a Youth In Harmony program which continues to grow in impact in the Central Bucks School District.

 

The program comprises three main elements:

1) Program kick-off "master class" with a championship level barbershop quartet. The morning of our Annual Show, we host a session where the students are introduced to barbershop harmony.

2) Bucks County Country Gentlemen Youth-In-Harmony Spring Festival competition is a competitive event hosted by the chapter.  Each of the participating quartets sings a barbershop song and is judged by a panel of qualified judges.

3) The champion quartet of the spring festival wins a scholarship to attend the Mid-Atlantic District Youth Camp at Harmony College East, in Salisbury, MD.  This is a full two day choral instruction event where participants are coached on vocoal tecnique. our students are amongst the yougest participants.

 

Bucks County chapter is proud to engage in a collaboration with Atlantic Harmony Brigade in an effort to rally support so we can send more participating quartets.  It is our dream to be able to sponsor as many youth quartets want to participate.
