Here is a reprint from their website… The Masters of Harmony are based in Santa Fe Springs, California, the all-male chorus, uniting over 100 voices, is dedicated to musical excellence and the preservation of the uniquely American style of music known as “Barbershop.” In the years since their inception in 1985, the Masters have risen to the highest levels of a cappella singing in the world with seven international championships with the Barbershop Harmony Society and numerous other recognitions to their credit. The Masters of Harmony was inducted into the Vocal Group Hall of Fame in Sharon, Pennsylvania in September 2002.

The Masters of Harmony will once again take a leadership role in supporting choral music education in local schools by presenting the 9th Annual Young Men’s Harmony Festival. The event will be an all-day clinic and rehearsal for over 200 young men from high schools throughout Southern California, culminating in a joint performance with the Masters that is open to the public. In addition to several guest clinicians, members of 2008 international gold medalist quartet OC Times and up-and-coming foursome The Crush will serve as section leaders and role models.

The purpose of the event, co-sponsored by the Southern California Vocal Association, is to expose young men and their choral music teachers to the barbershop style and give students an opportunity to experience the joy of “ringing a chord.” All proceeds from the performance will go toward supporting choral music education throughout Southern California.

Interested singers who wish to participate in the festival can download the registration form from:
