Since 1999, the Sunshine District of the Barbershop Harmony Society has sponsored a 3-day Summer Music Camp for Florida high school boys and girls and their Music Educators. This camp is called Harmony Explosion. There is nothing to buy and there is nothing to join. This is not just another Camp. You will experience the very best of a cappella singing.
All information regarding Sunshine Harmony Explosion is now available on our own website at sunshinehx.org. Please go there for information and/or to register.

Youth In Harmony
Director of Student Activities – Steve Cragg
The Vision of the Barbershop Harmony Society is to lead the cause of encouraging choral music in our schools, our homes and in our communities. With this purpose in mind, in late 1998, the Sunshine District launched the Youth Music Festival Program, a major effort to further this vision by introducing barbershop harmony, an original American art form of four-part a cappella singing, to the students and music educators of every school throughout the State of Florida
The Sunshine District is proud of the fact that it has launched the largest music education partnership program for students in Florida’s history at no cost to the State, the schools or the students. The event name has changed to Youth Harmony Workshop and has been a great success. To date over 19,000 students and 800 music educators have participated in the Youth Harmony Workshop program in Florida alone. The program, in cooperation with Sweet Adelines International, has spread across the entire country. Many current top level quartet and chorus members had their start at one of these workshops
If your chapter is interested in coordinating a Workshop in your area please contact Sunshine District’s Youth in Harmony VP Steve Craggvia email or by calling (813) 390-3690.
