Harmony University is not a Dixie specific event. It is an annual event of the Barbershop Harmony Society. It is a week long retreat in which hundreds of singers from all over the world gather to learn more about vocal music with an emphasis on the barbershop style (with obvious applications to choral and a cappella music). Held on an actual university campus, the "university" consists of multiple "colleges" which have their own classes focused on specific areas.
The Dixie District is proud to have sponsored at least two music educators per year to this event. Local chapters may nominate teachers for this scholarship at any time during the year, and selections are made by March 31. Announcement of the program is through the Rebel Rouser and communications with chapters.
