YWIH Region 12 Mountain Harmony Camp Happenings


Yes!  Mountain Harmony Camp was such a success last year under the direction of Cyndi Sharp and Shirley Kout (with LOTS of help from a ton of Region 12 members) that we plan to do it again!


We are fostering excitement and education for young women to sing Barbershop Harmony and we need you to be a part of it. If encouraging our future young women singers is a passion of yours or if you see the need for us to foster the younger generation of women singers, then you're halfway there! 


We have two exciting fundraisers planned for this year to help defray some of the expenses for the camp. 



We have leftover drinking cups from last year's fundraiser.  We are going to ask each chorus to take two cups and fill them up with whatever you can imagine that would be fun for buyer (new items only).   For example: Lottery Tickets, money, fabric, coffee beans, candy.... well, you get the idea.  We'll have a Silent Auction of the filled cups at the Summer Spectacular.


2. Buy A Note! Sing A Song!  

We'll be selling notes for $5.00 each to "That's What Friends Are For" (526 of them, 120 for Tenors, 150 for Leads, 137 for Bari's and 119 for Basses) in Reno and at the Summer Spectacular. All donations go to support the camp. We'll have a table at the Harmony Bazaar in Reno.  Come buy a note, we'll fill in the sheet music by coloring every note you buy in whatever voice part you choose.  You'll get a special note pin made just for note buyers and you'll also get to sing in a special chorus of note buyers at September AIM directed by Cyndi Sharp.


What more do we need?  Here's a laundry list:

  • Helpers at convention in Reno and the Summer Spectacular to sell notes.
  • Grant writers
  • Someone to head up a fundraising committee for Cyndi and the Region 12 YWIH
  • Someone to work on acquiring Corporate Sponsorship
  • If you can imagine it and are willing to make it happen, you get the satisfaction of helping the future generation of Sweet Adelines.

If you can help, please contact:  Kathy Triolo 530 264-7210 or email
