The Arrangers WorkShop at Harmony College Northwest (HCNW) is for men and women who want to learn more about arranging  barbershop music. Whether you're interested in learning to arrange songs in the barbershop style or want to better understand barbershop arrangements in general, you'll find The Arrangers WorkShop an exciting and valuable experience!

By student request, this year we’ll be spending most of Thursday arranging our new Project Song (an uptune recommended to us by superstar arranger Robert Rund). Sessions will be devoted to arranging the Project Song in your choice of groups: Beginning / Less Experienced Arrangers with Janice Wheeler, More Experienced Arrangers with Mike Menefee, or Advanced Arrangers with Chuck Roegiers. Results from all three groups will be shared on Friday.

Other scheduled activities and classes include Mike and Chuck teaming up to present Arranging for Different Ensembles, a Friday morning Tin Pan Alley session where the Grand Prize Winners of the 2019-2020 and 2020-2021 Tag Writing Contests will present their winning tags, and, private arrangement review sessions available on a first-come, first-served basis for those who have personal arranging work they would like to discuss with faculty members.


Instructors for the virtual event are:

  • Mike Menefee: Mike directs West Sound Chorus and has arranged music for both BHS and SAI choruses and quartets. A two-time Evergreen District quartet champ, Mike holds an M.Ed. degree and has taught in Central Kitsap Schools for over 25 years.
  • Chuck Roegiers: Chuck is the director of Acapella Soundsations (SAI) and Asst. Director for West Sound Chorus (BHS). A retired US Navy Bandmaster, he arranges barbershop music for men and women, including the Dapper Dans of Disneyland fame.
