What have we got planned?
First of all we will offer some smaller group courses, which (depending on location) will include topics on:
- Marketing and PR
- Music Team (we encourage each chapter have its music team present rather than just a representative)
In the afternoon we will hold two leadership courses for the whole body of participants. Both of these courses are branded BHS courses also offered at Harmony University and will have a skilled facilitator.
THINK!: a course that engages chapters in studying their level of chapter alignment and the areas that are most important to individual chapter's identity. It works best if groups of members from the same chapter are present to investigate their own chapter. Many chapters can be in attendance, but, ideally, they have multiple members present.
Chapter Membership Audit: a tool for determining the best roles and tasks for individual members to hold in the chapter, and a tool for determining the best strategies for moving people from Incompetence to competence in any skill that a chapter requires.

The Evergreen District
Evergreen District dates back to 1947 and serves chapters of the Barbershop Harmony Society in Alaska, Alberta, British Columbia, Idaho, Montana, Oregon, and Washington. We provide leadership to our members and chapters, and are regarded as an innovative, exciting, and organized District; one that fosters barbershop harmony for all and encourages vocal music in our schools and communities. You can read more about our District here.
Here in the Evergreen District our vision aligns with our parent organization--the Barbershop Harmony Society--to celebrate the joy of singing four-part barbershop harmony. And we do that by celebrating harmony, promoting fellowship and friendship among men, and introducing and sustaining music in the lives of people everywhere. No simple task, but one we're game for taking on! Won't you join us?
Find a Chorus and Sing
Not only is singing excellent for your physical well-being and mental health, but it can alleviate pain, aide you in focusing, elevate that workout session, cheer you up, and calm you down (it's true; read this article!). But putting all that aside, it's also a whole bunch of fun! If you are interested in seeing what four-part barbershop harmony is all about--and how to find it near you--visit our Chapters or Quartets page!
