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.”

Harmony, Inc. is proud to announce a new fundraising campaign called Directors First. The goal is simple: We want to send one director or musical leader from EACH CHAPTER to Harmony University, a world-class educational experience hosted by the Barbershop Harmony Society, in the next five years. We know we can do it. We know it will expose our directors and musical leaders to a world-class barbershop harmony education, which will trickle down to every set of risers in our organization.
