The Retreat includes 7+ hours of instruction from the best in the world, 3 potential performance opportunities, a Quartet Coaching Session or Personal Vocal Instruction (PVI) Session with a Champion quarteter, opportunities to experience world-class performers up-close and personal, fun adventures for "grown up" campers, NEW adult mixed harmony chorus rehearsals, and a chance to learn alongside the next generation of barbershoppers who will change your life unlike any experience you've ever had.  Affordable hotels are available nearby and while meals are on your own, they are also available for purchase at Cazenovia College for $8-10 per meal!
