Harmony Explosion! is a one-day clinic that introduces Middle School and High School students and teachers (and family members and friends) to the 4-part a cappella harmonic sounds created by singing Barbershop style music. The Kansas City Chapter of the Barbershop Harmony Society and the Kansas City Chorus of Sweet Adelines join forces to sponsor this event, as we have done for more than 30 years.

Harmony Explosion! includes vocal music activities for students that wish to sing Barbershop music in quartets or in larger groups – with a common goal to promote 4-part a cappella singing in a mistake-friendly environment that encourages participation and performance with plenty of support and fun!

Goal #1 – get the students to sing on stage!
Goal #2 – get the students excited about singing a cappella music on their own and with their friends!
Goal #3 – get the students to understand that singing is a life-long hobby – they can participate in school, in college, as young adults, and throughout their lifetime.
Goal #4 – provide excellence in vocal music singing through demonstration and education with wonderful Featured Quartets such as Harmonium, Legacy, BoomTown, Premium Blend, HEAT and ZING!

Getting the students to sing on stage is a HUGE accomplishment:
1. Builds character and self-confidence
2. Improves their self-esteem
3. Teaches them responsibility and accountability
4. Uses Barbershop Music as the vehicle for fun!

The schedule of the day will look something like this:
9:00 am Opening Session
9:15 am Vocal warm-ups and song rehearsal
10:00 am Quartet Performances
12:30 pm LUNCH!
1:00 pm Afternoon song rehearsal
2:00 pm Student Chorus and Parade of Quartets Concert and Awards
4:00 pm Depart

Make plans now to attend. You will thoroughly enjoy the experience – I GUARANTEE IT!
