This is one of our FAVORITE Harmony Weekends, this time with a special bonus: the Young Women in Harmony Butterfly Chorus!
to attend our Winter Harmony Weekend at the Holiday Inn Independence, January 26 - 28, 2024, and bring along your special 25-years-or-under guest!  
Regular attendees will be assigned to one of three Festival Choruses, directed by talented Region 17 Top Five Medalist directors, including Dr. Jay Dougherty, Michael Hengelsberg, and Nathan Ogg.   There you will create, rehearse and be coached on your own special (maybe even top secret?) rendition of one of our favorite Regional songs, Lazy Day! Region 17 members who do not have copies or tracks for Lazy Day may purchase them using the information below:

Butterfly Chorus attendees will perform The Locomotion under the direction of A Cappella Magic director and music educator Betsy Fowler.  Once registered, Butterfly Chorus performers will be sent the sheet music and tracks for their song. Our own Region 17 master director Diane Porsch will serve as our Festival Chorus coach for all four choruses.  
Attendees of all ages will be treated to additional educational sessions taught by our Region 17 Festival Chorus directors and coach.  
BUTTERFLY CHORUS: Age limit is 25 years old and younger - there is no lower age limit. The criteria is that our young women have to be able to learn and perform their parts prior to the weekend and the choreography which will be presented at the weekend. We will be immersing the young women in the entire Region 17 experience including education, so they will need to have some interest in learning about our craft and be able to learn alongside the rest of us.
