The students were coached by some of the best four part a capella harmony singers in the world from the Barbershop Harmony Society and Sweet Adelines International. The ninth annual event was sponsored by the Windom Area Chordhustlers and chaired by Jay Imker from Lamberton. The Chordhustlers opened the concert, directed by Kent Mickelson from Lakefield.

The Young Men in Harmony performed the Frank Sinatra Classic "Come Fly with Me" and "Drivin' Me Crazy" by Bob Disney and were directed by Brent Graham from Minneapolis. The Young Women in Harmony were directed by Judy Weipert from Spirit Lake and wowed the audience with famous classics from the nineteen fifties, "At the Hop" and "One Fine Day". Then, as all eighty adult and student singers filled the risers, the music educa- tors told the audience how bringing their students to this event year after year helps them become better singers and introduces them to an a capella art form that they may not otherwise experience. The students, Chordhustlers and clini- cians then brought the audi- ence to their feet as they concluded the day with a stirring eight-part harmony song called "If There's Anybody Here From Out of Town". Participating schools were Butterfield- Odin, Red Rock Central, Westbrook-Walnut Grove, and Windom. The tenth annual Youth in Harmony Festival is sched- uled for Saturday, January 18, 2014.
