Somerset Hills Harmony (SHH), Central New Jersey’s premiere mixed all-age a cappella chorus, is excited to announce that we have established a Faculty in Residence program funded by a private grant.

We are equally excited to announce that our first Faculty in Residence is Dr. John Wilson, Choral Director of Bridgewater-Raritan High School and President of NJACDA. In this capacity, Dr. Wilson:

- Serves as an education/training resource for our musical leadership, including directors and section leaders.

- Advises on the continued development of our member education plan.
- Serves as a clinical resource when appropriate.

Chris Staffin, Somerset Hills Harmony President, commented, “John Wilson has been a pillar of the New Jersey choral education community for a number of years. We are looking forward to taking our organization to the next level with his guidance.”

Doug Brown, Vocal & Performance Coach for Somerset Hills Harmony, observed, “This is a positive opportunity that demonstrates that the organization is committed to the education and development of not only its members, but section leaders and the director team as well. I think this provides another significant leap forward for the entire chorus.”
