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.
