  LOL Chorus Director Development  

Directors are the lifeblood of our chapters. These men and women spend hours working outside
of your regular chapter meeting nights, to help make an evening that is both fun and a learning
experience. This page will have links to many useful and interesting bits of knowledge to help
your Director and your Chapter’s succeed.

Hello Chorus Directors:

 Harmony University/Directors College is happening again

this year at Belmont University in Nashville, TN., the week

of July 24-31, 2016. This is a week you won't forget. A

combination of the best Directing instructors, a "Who's Who"

of Barbershopping, plenty of singing, and your chance to

come home on a Barbershop HIGH!

If you have questions, this is the place to get them answered.

Looking for ideas, this is the place to find them. Need help

getting answers to your specific chorus problems, get them

answered here!

Need help getting there? There are 2 ways to make that happen.

One way is to go to the barbershop website and apply for a

scholarship. If you're either a first time student to HU or a BHS

Front Line Director, you are almost assured of receiving either

a full or partial scholarship for tuition, meals, and lodging

(transportation is on your own). Here's the link:

 The second way is to apply for an ADC (Association of District

Champions) Scholarship. They are offering at least a partial scholarship.

Here is the link to their site where you can get their application:

 As always, If I can help you in any way or answer any questions,

please let me know!

 I wish you the best of luck and I hope to see many of our LO'L

Directors, this summer, in Nashville!

And Remember... It's What's Up Front That Counts!
