Region 12’s Young Women in Harmony is an outreach program that offers affordable workshops throughout our region, dedicated to providing a safe and supportive environment where every girl can freely explore her voice and expand her creativity, while discovering the joy of a cappella singing through high quality education in Barbershop style harmony. We also provide school choral program support for teachers, including free music and instructional materials. Many choruses also offer coaching and workshops focused in their local communities.
