Today, more than ever, the positive experience so many of us have with our Barbershop chapters needs to be shared in a much broader manner. Our chapters provide a safe and welcoming environment for all people who love music, and the extended family feeling that coming together to share that love of music brings.
Your thoughtful gift will help prepare our chapters to bring that opportunity more broadly into their communities by sponsoring youth organizations, community performances and bringing high caliber performers to their area to encourage many people to join in the fun, as soon as the pandemic subsides.
We appreciate your continued support and love of barbershop harmony.

The 8 Success Factors for a Successful Chorus. Prior to watching the 6 minute video we suggest you download the two Word documents so you can see the support material as you are watching the video. The PowerPoint can be used for a member of the chorus to share the concept with the others in the chorus.
The 7th Annual Wisconsin Youth Harmony Festival (WYHF) will be held on Saturday, May 21st at Pacelli High School in Stevens Point.
After cancelling in 2020, and doing a Virtual WYHF in 2021, WYHF is really looking forward to being back In-Person in 2022!
“2022 ROAR BACK AGAIN – Even Louder!”
The Fall District Convention and Contest will again be held at the MSP Airport Hilton Hotel in the Twin Cities the weekend of October 14-15 with an expanded schedule of even more events and fun-filled activities for everyone. Our first Roar Back convention helped us focus on how important it is for us to sing together again and personally reach out to so many members of our barbershop family.
This coming fall we plan to capitalize on the many “firsts” we had at the LOL 2021 Roar Back Convention. All of the convention activities in one hotel, on-line (credit card) convention registration, on-line hotel reservations, on-line webpage, multiple hospitality rooms, a convention theme song, box lunches, Fun Squad activities, youth involvement, and so much more which were all first of a kind.
And, we are planning to finish off the weekend with another Showcase dinner highlighting another top quartet. We are so excited to host another tremendous Roar Back event in 2022 – event LOUDER!
"Hold On To Hope" is the theme song for the 2022 Fall Convention. Below are links to the learning tracks:
