2018 marks the 40th year of Harmony College, which is organised and run entirely by volunteers. This gives us a special a reason to celebrate this year, and there will be a special celebratory feel to the whole weekend.

Joining our expert team of British educators is perhaps our biggest and most exciting guest faculty from overseas ever. Justin Miller, Musical Director of the Westminster Chorus and Jonny Moroni, Musical Director of the Ambassadors of Harmony will lead our two Audition Choruses. David Wright, Eric Dalbey, Chris Hallam and Tim Waurick will be running sessions around the college, and Vocal Spectrum will headline our Saturday Night Spectacular celebration.

This year also sees the return of the Youth Chorus stream, which will be yet another exciting new addition to the College.

Alan Goldsmith and his team have worked tirelessly to make this event not only special, but also as cost-effective and affordable as possible. There are more price options than ever to suit a variety of budgets, and Harmony Foundation has agreed to 10 make full scholarships available.

I look forward to welcoming you to Nottingham this August, to a Harmony College which you won’t want to miss!

Alan Hughes
Music Services Director, British Association of Barbershop Singers
