Youth in Harmony Festival

The Twin Cities A Cappella Festival is sponsored by local chapters of the Barbershop Harmony Society and Sweet Adelines International.

During this action-packed day, singers from around the Twin Cities Area will come together under the guidance of top-level teaching quartets, clinicians, and staff who will introduce the student (and even educators) to A Cappella harmony unlike no other. During the festival day, the students will be formed into a male and female chorus to work with our expert clinicans on musicality, vocal production, harmony, showmanship (choreography) and most of all what barbershop harmony is all about.

Youthlink Program

Each year, the Minneapolis Commodores gives a percentage of our Annual Show profits to a charitable organization. This year’s recipient is Youthlink.

YouthLink works with homeless youth, ages 16-23. We are located in downtown Minneapolis, and serve youth across the Twin Cities.

At YouthLink, we have over 40 years of experience connecting young people with a community of resources and support. Whether it’s basic needs, like a hot shower or a warm meal, assistance with employment or educational goals, accessing mental and physical health resources, or finding supportive housing, we can help young people at all stages of their journey.
