"Harmony Explosion" is hosted by the MountainTown Singers

Camp Dates June 27-29, 2019

Harmony ExplosionThis annual camp brings together young singers (age 15-25) with diverse backgrounds and experiences. The musical focus of the camp is a cappella music with a tilt toward the barbershop style. World class clinicians and teaching quartets teach skills that include healthy singing, close harmony tuning, spine tingling blend and a host of other items that will be useful and fun for the campers. Friendships will be developed in a supportive environment while enjoying university level venues and accommodations. The ninth annual event is a must for students looking to try something new and an opportunity for prior year campers to return to hang with their friends and add another tool to their singing toolbox.
