Directors First

Harmony, Inc. Puts Directors First!

Stronger directors = stronger chapters = stronger Areas = stronger Harmony, Inc.

Harmony, Inc. members have long known that the strength of our organization rests in the hands of our musical directors. Strong directors contribute to strong chapters, which are the basis for strong Areas and a strong international organization. In a nutshell, Harmony, Inc. understands the importance of putting its “Directors First.”

In 2016, Harmony, Inc. began a fundraising campaign called Directors First. The goal was simple: We wanted to send one director or musical leader from EACH CHAPTER to Harmony University, a world-class educational experience hosted by the Barbershop Harmony Society over five years. We knew it would expose our directors and musical leaders to a world-class barbershop harmony education, which would trickle down to every set of risers in our organization.

For 2024, our primary focus is on supporting directors and musical leaders who have recently joined Harmony, Inc. We believe that this important education will provide them with a strong foundation within our organization. While Directors First is available to all our directors and musical leaders, we will give priority to those who are new to Harmony, Inc., ensuring they have the best start possible.
