Hope you enjoyed your 4th holiday yesterday. I wanted to pass along this opportunity to all choir families (2018 graduates are included as well!). We are hosting the Pittsburgh Youth Harmony Festival at Ross Elementary on Thursday, July 26, 2018. It's a day-long singing festival that focuses on barbershop (male and female) singing as well as some of the newer contemporary a cappella singing. There are several staff members leading the group as well as professional section leaders that will work with smaller groups during the day. A featured a cappella group willl also join in the day.
Here's the great thing...since we were able to work out a pretty good deal financially for the group, the leaders have told me that if you mention that you're a North Hills student when you register, they'll waive the $25 registration fee and you can participate for FREE during the day!
Here's a little more info from their site about the event:
A Young Singer’s Best Day of the Year!
Thousands of students are crazy about Youth Harmony Workshops.
We provide the easy and infectious barbershop sheet music. We provide the venue. We provide the clinicians to teach the music to male, female and combined choruses. You will provide the enthusiasm. We provide the fun. You will be singing these songs weeks later, whether you like it or not.
Just wait until you see our master clinicians at work. You will join with other student singers for a one-day event unlike any other. An action-packed day ends with a spectacular combined performance that will give you goosebumps.
The Festival is for youth ages 12-18 (2018 grads welcome!). If you have any questions about age limits, please do not hesitate to contact us.
