Welcome to HX!

Harmony Explosion - [noun] 1. A sudden and energetic expansion of sound, specifically, a cappella music.

Harmony Explosion Northwest is a 3-day summer camp for young men and women between the ages of 12 and 21.  Our next camp will be held on July 18th - 20th, 2019 at Pacific Lutheran University in Tacoma, Washington.  We offer students a unique musical experience, the chance to gain confidence by singing in front of a large audience, to meet new friends, to work as a team, to accomplish a goal, and to be around positive role models.  In 2017, 163 students from several states including Washington, Oregon, Utah and from Canada came together to form one of the most amazing sights and sounds the Pacific Northwest has ever experienced.

Tuition is $190 (U.S. funds) per camper, and scholarships are available.  Register Here
