WHAT:  Harmony College East 2020

WHERE: The beautiful campus of McDaniel College, Westminster, MD

WHEN:  Thursday, June 18 through Sunday, June 21, 2020

COURSES:  We are excited to report that in addition to our standard amazing course offerings, we have added many NEW courses and instructors this year, such as:

  • Powerful Listening Skills (Anne Bureau)
  • Starting a Mixed or Women's Chorus (Katie MacDonald)
  • Building and Growing Your Audience (Chris Rimple)
  • Purposeful Inclusion (Chris Rimple)
  • Introducing Barbershop to Elementary and Middle School Students (John Wernega)
  • Music Team Development (Rick Serpico)

...and MORE!!  All new courses are highlighted on the registration website.

COACHING: By coming to Harmony College East as a quartet quartet or chorus, you will have the opportunity to take advantage of intensive coaching by some of the finest coaches in the Barbershop Harmony Society, such as gold medalists Brian O'Dell, Gary Parker, and Brian Beck, and local luminaries such as Joe Cerutti and Rick Taylor, to name just a few. Your quartet or chorus will leave your HCE experience with the tools and skills to continue to grow and improve!

PRIVATE VOCAL INSTRUCTION (PVI):  In addition to our courses and coaching, you will have the opportunity to sign up for a 40-minute time period for one-on-one vocal instruction with one of our faculty members, who will help you to target your areas of vocal concern and give you strategies on how to improve!

COST (PLEASE READ CAREFULLY -- NEW INFORMATION HERE):  As you may be aware, costs for everything these days are going up. To that end, and to be fiscally responsible to the Mid-Atlantic District, we have increased the price for all categories of registration by a modest amount (in most cases, only $10 per person). In addition, McDaniel College is requiring that we pay the SAME fee to them for each attendee, REGARDLESS of the number of nights or the number of meals. Therefore, we have had to limit the options for all attendees to register for either a "resident" rate OR a "commuter" rate, with no options for number of nights or meals.  You will see the updated options on the dropdown menu on the registration page. Please note that we have NO wiggle room on this; again, this is another way to be fiscally responsible to the District.

REGISTRATION LINK: Please go to and follow the links to the registration page. You will receive an email confirmation upon completion of your registration. 

We, your Deans, hope that you, your quartet, and your chorus will consider coming to Harmony College East this year to take advantage of the best faculty and coaches the Society has to offer!
