The Minor Chords are a chorus made up of Harmony’s youth members, that are age 25 and under. Every year a new director is chosen to provide an unforgettable experience for these talented young women. In song, friendship, and some fantastic choreography this ensemble of youth members comes together every year to form lasting friendships, bond with their peers, and show everyone that the future of Harmony is in great hands.
Each November, at IC&C, the Minor Chords reunite with past friends and make new ones, while rehearsing their latest piece that they will perform at the President’s Reception, the Annual Membership Meeting, and again at the end of Saturday Night’s chorus contest. You can also catch these girls rehearsing their current music and revisiting past pieces in the hallways, rooms, and lounges of the IC&C convention building.
In addition to the youth experience at IC&C, the Jacquelyn Klooster Scholarship
is given out every year to one of our enthusiastic youth members, in order to help relieve some of the expenses of IC&C. This scholarship was created by the Klooster Family in memory of Jacquelyn Klooster. The idea of this scholarship is to encourage the young women of Harmony Inc. to come and join their peers in song by singing with the Minor Chords! The scholarship is open to any youth member who lives in the country that hosts IC&C for that year. This past year's Jacquelyn Klooster Scholarship was awarded to Robin Gorham from Elm City Echoes.
The application, qualifications, and detailed information about the Jacquelyn Klooster Scholarship
can be found on the Harmony Inc. website.
