Holland Harmony Convention 2019



The biggest barbershop event in Holland will take place again in 2019, from 29 – 31 March. It is already for the 19th time that Holland Harmony organizes this fantastic happening. For many years now, the best of barbershop convenes at the Congress Centre Koningshof in Veldhoven. Choruses and quartets measure their strengths in a diversity of contests, judged by a professional jury.

However, the convention weekend is so much more than just about competition. Convention means to convene, to meet, to come together in music, in inspiration. Inspiration you can find every day during the contests and in the shows at the end of each day. On the Friday and Saturday show you can enjoy our new winners of the competitions and multiple phenomenal (inter)national guests. On Sunday it is time for a special show, “A Dutch Treat”. Add to that the several occasions for the well known ‘Afterglow’ and you will understand what “Convention in barbershop” really means!

“Passion in Harmony” – convention 2019  – to inspire, to connect and to further stimulate the infectious fire and pass it on. The world around us will stop for a moment. It is a three day long beautiful, human and musical festival.
