ScotianAires director Sue Kember is one of the first directors from Harmony, Inc. to receive a “Directors First” scholarship.
Harmony, Inc. announced the Directors First fundraising campaign in 2016. The goal is to send one director or musical leader from each chapter (chorus) to Harmony University, a world –class educational experience hosted by the Barbershop Harmony Society – in the next five years.
This is not Kember’s first visit to Harmony University, held at Belmont University in Nashville, but there is always more to learn in the barbershop world. "I am looking forward to spending another week being surrounded by talented people who come to HU to share their knowledge with such intensity”, Kember enthused. “I learn so much about all aspects of Barbershop and music that it is quite addictive going to HU. I am grateful to have received this scholarship to attend this year.”
The ScotianAires are rightly proud of Kember who first joined the ScotianAires in 1994 and became their director in 2006. Recently, Kember was certified as a Singing Judge for Harmony, Inc. and has found her way back into quartetting with the newly formed group, enJOY.
Congratulations to Sue Kember and all the Directors First scholarship recipients!
