The Harmony College offers an opportunity to every singer to further his or her musical education and involvement. Chorus singers can sing in a men's or women's project chorus as well as take part in a variety of courses covering the entire spectrum of Barbershop music. Especially for young participants there is the Youth Chorus, which enjoys greater popularity from year to year. Quartets have the opportunity to participate in courses and to be coached in their group. As coaches and lecturers of the Harmony College, high-ranking, internationally recognised Barbershop specialists from all over the world are invited to pass on their many years of experience to the participants.
Various events take place in the evening, namely
- the Coesfeld Cup on the first evening - a quartet competition, which every 2 years serves as a qualification for the following national quartet championship during the Barbershop Music Festival - and the
- Chorditorium, a concert event in which a wide variety of musical contributions can be staged.
What should not be missing after intensive, full lessons with coaching, courses and chorus rehearsals is the legendary afterglow, which is celebrated into the early morning hours. The informal exchange of experiences and the social hours together make these 4 days a unique experience.
In recent years, BinG! has become a real magnet for Barbershoppers and a cappella enthusiasts from all over Germany and beyond. The wide range of learning content, the fun of singing together (sometimes until late at night...) and the good atmosphere have ensured that many participants keep coming back every year.
