Join in the 39th Harmony College
We've now reached our 39th Harmony College and, whilst remaining at the Jubilee Campus of Nottingham University, we now also have available the Jubilee Convention Centre which is just a few hundred yards from the other facilities. This means that we're able to offer enhanced bedroom accommodation, similar to a four star hotel, with single, twin and double options, all with televisions and hair dryers. It does come at a slightly increased price, but of course we also have the familiar student bedrooms available.
Our guest educators this year are Rob Mance, director of International silver medal chorus 'Central Standard', who will be working with the Personal Development Stream as well as having sessions with the College Chorus and the Quartet Stream, and Doug Harrington who will be working with the Audition Chorus. Both of these internationally renowned directors and coaches will also be running break-out sessions which are options for all students.
As in previous years we have courses to suit all levels of experience, some that concentrate on singing whilst others are there to develop knowledge of music and the craft of barbershop harmony singing. Quartet are catered for in both the Quartet Stream, where you come as a quartet to develop your skills, and the Extreme Quartet Stream, where you'll be in different quartets throughout the weekend, using a number of well-established songs. If you want to sing in a chorus then check out the College Chorus, coached this year by the irrepressible quartet 'The Emerald Guard', and the Audition Chorus, where you have to submit a recording before the event to demonstrate your ability to sing at a more advanced level.
So we've retained everything that has made Harmony College the one barbershop event not to miss, and added extra attractions, both in courses and in accommodation - don't delay in booking!
