It is my pleasure to welcome you to the website of Harmony College 2019, where you can find all of the information you will need, and book your place at the event.
After such a successful event last year, my challenge this year was to build on that success, so my team and I have been working hard to make a number of tweaks and improvements to the event. For the first time, this year’s college will be managed by two people – Ali Jack will look after accommodation and enrolment, whilst Alan Goldsmith will return to the team to look after the education planning and delivery of the event. I am hugely grateful to both of these for making this event happen, along with the countless volunteers who give their time and expertise freely.
Joining our expert team of British educators this year is Steve Scott from the Barbershop Harmony Society. Steve is an expert in vocal pedagogy, a great teacher, and possesses a wonderful sense of humour. We will be working hard to ensure that every delegate at the event (including the faculty!) gets to spend some time with Steve over the busy weekend.
My team have worked tirelessly to make this event not only special, but also as cost-effective and affordable as possible. As always there are a variety of price options to suit a variety of budgets, and BABS has agreed to make eight scholarships and awards available to those who apply.
I hope you enjoy browsing the website and that you find the booking process quick and easy. I look forward to welcoming you to Nottingham this August, to a Harmony College which will be as wonderful as ever!
