The Association of International Barbershop Quartet Champions (AIC), many of whom are music educators, is working to increase support for music education by expanding the reach and impact of close harmony singing throughout the world via live concerts, virtual performances, film presentations, and in-person outreach initiatives. Beginning in 2021 (provided the pandemic subsides), the AIC outreach initiatives will launch into regional, local, and underserved communities, including school districts in the Los Angeles, Tampa Bay, and Denver metro areas. School events in St. Louis, Louisville, and Baltimore are currently in the planning stages.

An Outreach Fund has been established to support bringing these performers/clinics/clinicians into schools, no strings attached. Interested music educators may apply for grant assistance information by contacting Harmony Foundation International:
