The Young Women and Young Men In Harmony (YW&YMIH) Workshop is February 29, 2020 at Mercy McAulley High School and is a unique opportunity for young women and men to learn the art of singing four-part a cappella harmony in the barbershop style. The Festival will include classes, rehearsals, and coaching on vocal production and stage performance skills.  It will culminate in the YW&YMIH Festival Show in the auditorium on Saturday evening at 7:30 p.m. The show, which is open to the public with no admission charge, will star the Festival participants and features award-winning barbershop singers from the Cincinnati community.

The fee for the Festival is $25 and includes classes, rehearsals, and coaching, advance copies of sheet music and a learning CD, lunch/dinner/snacks, a Festival T-shirt, and the Saturday night show. Full scholarships based on financial need are granted to the extent funds are available.

Young singers will love learning the intricacies of singing harmony in the barbershop style. It’s a unique style of close, unaccompanied, four-part harmony that requires good vocal skills, ear-tuning, and musicianship, and it can be applied to ALL types of music – oldies, show tunes, contemporary hits, and more. With the rising popularity of vocal harmony groups, many young people have turned to barbershop to learn how to sing a cappella harmony. They have found there’s nothing quite like the challenge and fun of using just their voices to ring chords and make music with their friends.

Come see and hear the Young Women and Young Men perform!  You will be amazed as they show off their talents, as they perform songs they workshopped for only one day!  Sponsors and educators will perform also.  Great fun and NO CHARGE!
