   Youth in Harmony

Each year the Southern Gentlemen have reached out to the three high schools in our area to work with young men and women for the purpose of introducing them to the acapella style of singing. Through a grant provided by the Harold Bate Foundation in New Bern, we have the funds necessary to help us in this endeavor. The chorus is available to go to the classrooms on a continuing basis and work with the various quartets at each school. The culmination of the year is that six quartets are asked to sing on our annual show in April.

We are going into our third year of providing this opportunity to the local high schools. There is excellent participation by the high school Choral Directors. They provide us time in their classrooms to work with the students. The chorus also derived pleasure in helping to increase the knowledge of music to young people eager to learn.

The Southern Gentlemen Chrous is a group of men whose purpose is to preserve, promote and participate in the singing of barbershop harmony.
