A Better World. Singing. Day

Music belongs to everyone!

Share a great day of making music with your family – FREE! Saturday, July 9, Downtown Nashville

There’s more to making music than show biz — reclaim your right to SING FOR FUN.

Learn to sing or read along at Harmony University … join an old-fashioned Gospel sing… listen to great performers on our FREE STAGE in Walk Of Fame Park… or come inside the Bridgestone Arena for the Saturday Spectacular featuring great choruses, quartets, and an interactive music-making party!


Gospel Sing

10 am, First Baptist Church on Broadway

First Baptist Church has graciously offered their facilities to host the annual Gospel Sing, on Broadway right across the corner from The Society Headquarters (and the Masonic Lodge). Join with hundreds of other singers in song, singing some of your favorite traditional gospel songs and hymns in perfect harmony.

World Harmony Jamboree

1 – 3:30 pm, Music City Center in the Davidson Ballroom

The World Harmony Jamboree is hailed as one of the most entertaining and versatile shows at the International Convention. Quartets and Choruses from all over the world come together in a parade of barbershop and a cappella entertainment, each bringing their own culturally-inspired unique twist into the mix. You don’t want to miss this wildly entertaining mix of variety and full-throttle a cappella.

There’s nothing quite like the sights and sounds of thousands of singers gathered together outdoors in the heart of Music City, lifting their voices in song. Come join with the many thousands of International Convention’s attendees and sing along, or just watch and enjoy the singular thrill of an event few people get to experience in person.

Quartet Finals

Come for the Saturday Night Spectacular, stay for the Quartet Finals! The Top 10 Quartet Finals competition each year proves to be the single most blisteringly exciting and competitive a cappella event around. The ten best quartets in the world duke it out in front of a panel of certified judges and thousands of audience members to earn the right to be crowned the International Quartet Champion. It’s quite simply one of the most breathtaking contests you may ever witness live, and we guarantee you’ll get caught up in the energy and excitement when they announce the new champions in front of thousands of screaming fans. It’s the perfect way to end an amazing day of world-class barbershop activities.
