Seventh Annual Youth In Harmony Festival

On March 4, music students from local high schools joined Tri City Sound and The Central Coast Chordsmen to learn about barbershop style music. The event took place at 4:00 pm at St. Louis De Montfort Church Hall in Orcutt.

The program was as follows:

Intuned (the young women's chorus): "You've Got a Friend" and "Lean on Me" 
The Corney Island Chordsmen (the young men's chorus): "The Chordbuster March" and "Coney Island Baby"

Jeweltones sang "They Go Simply- Wild Over Me" and "Blue Skies"

Our guest quartet The Newfangled Four performed, as well as an audience sing-a-long. Guest director Margaret Nelson led "God Bless America" followed by the "Star Spangled Banner" to finish the evening.

The Youth in Harmony Program encourages and actively promotes the joyful experience of singing in general, and singing in the four-part barbershop style among young singers and their teachers.  The goals of the program are: to encourage and support local music education of all types in the elementary schools, junior high schools, high schools and colleges in our communities; to provide a performance outlet and to develop an awareness of singing as a lifelong recreational activity; to raise the awareness among teachers and education administrators that barbershop harmony is a viable musical art form that can help them to expand and improve their vocal music curriculum; to foster the establishment of groups of barbershop harmony singers at local schools as an integral part of the school music curriculum; to provide the environment in which young singers can develop greater self-confidence, improve performance skills, and learn the value of teamwork.
