Youth Chorus Festival Mission Statement

The mission of The International Youth Barbershop Chorus Festival is to:


·         Enrich young lives through a cappella music while perpetuating the barbershop harmony style.

·         Promote excellence in young male choruses by providing the best overall musical experience in an educational environment where students can learn from top adjudicators and performers, as well as from each other.

·         Provide a deeper understanding of an authentically American art-form, and to send students home with a new-found passion for singing, making music a part of the rest of their lives.
