Join us to celebrate the African American roots of Barbershop Harmony
The new Everyone in Harmony vision of the Barbershop Harmony Society calls for Barbershoppers to reach out and become radically inclusive to enhance diversity in our membership. Well, the Carolinas District is taking a leadership role in this mission.
We will be hosting a historic outreach to the African American students at the Triangle’s 3 Historically Black Colleges & Universities (HBCUs). The event will take place March 22-23, 2019 and will include top clinicians Dr. Bill Adams, BHS/NAfME Music Educator of the Year Debbie Cleveland, and Dr. Jim Henry, Music historian and director of the International Champion Ambassadors of Harmony. Teaching quartets will include Harmony Inc. quartet HALO, SAI Medalist quartet GQ, International Gold medal quartet Crossroads, and Grammy award winning gospel quartet Fairfield Four.
This groundbreaking effort will be hosted at NC Central University in Durham, NC and will include singers from other local HBCUs.
