Downingtown East High School hosted its annual Youth Barbershop Festival on Saturday, January 6. Two veteran teachers (each with over 30 years of conducting experience) were brought in to coach about 40 of our high school students on this genre of a cappella singing. Dr. Jay Butterfield, a founding member of Parkside Harmony (a men's chorus in Hershey, PA) and Mrs. Lori Ludlum, director of Shades of Harmony (a female chorus in Williamstown, NJ) were the guest clinicians. Lunch was provided by the Bryn Mawr Mainliners, a local men's chorus. The sheet music was provided compliments of the Barbershop Harmony Society.
