The Alexandria Harmonizers Youth Harmony Festival 2019

Friday, April 5, 2019 – 8:30 am to 8:30 pm in Alexandria

This all-day a cappella music workshop/show is open to any middle and high school students in the DC Metro Area.  Expert teachers and practitioners will teach them to sing and perform in four-part a cappella harmony. The structure is set up for anyone to have a singing experience for the day with a cappella music.

All Chorus students, whether they belong to an A Cappella group or not, are encouraged to participate. Either Mrs. G and/or Mrs. McCormick will attend with them, and we can organize school bus transportation.  Also, April 5th is a teacher workday, so you won’t be missing class.

Talk to each other!  Encourage/motivate each other!  And do it together!  Some members of our A Cappella groups will do a joint venture.  So, why not join them?  While you can participate individually, you will get coaching if attending as a group!
