The Harmony College is an annual long weekend organised by BinG! where you can experience all the intensity and thrilling emotionality of 4 part barbershop singing. Every singer individually has the possibility to educate themselves musically, to contribute and to have a lot of fun.
Chorus singers can sing in project choruses - here two songs are filled with life in a peppy and sensitive, passionate and cool way, which are then performed in front of an audience at the final concert.
In addition to the chorus rehearsals, interesting courses are offered on the topics of singing, stage presentation, interpretation and barbershop-specific music theory. Numerous renowned international Barbershop experts look forward to sharing their knowledge and enthusiasm for Barbershop every year.
Especially for young participants there is the youth camp (for young barbershoppers up to 30), which offers a lot of fun among peers. The weekend is also finished with a performance at the final concert.
The 3rd offering of the weekend is the Quartett College with special courses and individual coaching for BinG! registered quartets.
Traditionally the weekend starts with the quartet competition "Coesfeld Cup" in which quartets compete with 2 competitive pieces. This event gives the perfect start into an eventful and harmonious weekend with different evening events, exciting courses, interesting talks and the famous Afterglow, which rounds off every day with a lot of fun.
In recent years, the BinG! Harmony College has developed into a true magnet for barbershoppers and a cappella enthusiasts from all over Germany. The wide range of learning content, the fun of singing together (sometimes late into the night...) and the good atmosphere have ensured that many participants come back again and again.
