McDaniel College - Westminster, MD
Often called "The GREATEST weekend for barbershopping on the East Coast!",
this year, Harmony College East will be held at McDaniel College in Westminster, MD. Tuition is around $200, which includes a 3-night stay, 6 meals, all courses and two barbershop shows.
This is one of the "secret benefits" that the Mid-Atlantic District brings to its members and associates.
McDaniel College is a wonderful venue with lots of areas of special interest to barbershoppers, including tag singing areas, social spaces, beautiful auditoriums, and even microwave/fridges in the living quarters.
We bring in the top vocal and performance coaches across the US and Canada, and provide
classes and coaching for individual singers, quartets,choruses and also directors and prospective directors.
The school starts on Thursday evening with a general session at 7:00 pm. Classes start at 8:00 pm. Quartets will get their coaching 'grids' when they register at the school.
The school supplies sheets, pillow, blanket, towel, and face cloth as part of the linen purchase. It is suggested, however, that you bring a drinking cup and bar of soap.
In addition to our usual evening shows, we have some terrific activities of interest to all singers.
Show up early to the show on Friday night, at 7:00, and enjoy the MASS TAG SING, directed by Bill Stauffer, the dynamic director of the Voices of Gotham. 200+ voices will make these tags sound wonderful.
Show up early to the show on Saturday night, at 7:00, and enjoy a MASS SING. This will be directed by none other than our own Joe Cerutti. And Joe won't limit the songs to just those -- lots of old favorites.
You may include the entire ensemble in a single registration.
There is special package-pricing for quartets and their chaperone (4+1).
Discounts apply to those quartets who achieve an 'Excellent', 'Outstanding' or 'Superior' rating at our Youth Adjudications.
At the end of the registration process, you will need to print, sign and return the
YOUTH HARMONY CAMP Consent Form
Attention all M-AD Chapters and Members:
While many youth quartets/ensembles will/have earned scholarship for their achievements at the
Youth Adjudication at Prelims, others want to go to the HCE Youth Camp but either can't/couldn't
attend the March 15 event OR didn't achieve the necessary rating level to receive a scholarship.
If you know of a Youth quartet (male or female) that either cannot/was not able to attend the
District Youth Adjudications this winter/spring or did attend but did not receive an
“Excellent”, “Outstanding” or “Superior” rating, please consider
sponsoring their registration to the M-AD Youth Harmony Camp, being held in conjunction with
the adult Harmony College East this June. There are package deals available for the quartet
and their chaperone (1 chapterone required for every 4 students). If you or your chapter
would like to sponsor a quartet or ensemble, in part or whole, please
contact Kevin Boehm,
