International chorus champions, The Masters of Harmony, will hold the 12th Annual Young Men's Harmony Festival on Feb. 18 at the Robert B. Moore Theater at Orange Coast College in Costa Mesa. The event, an all-day clinic and rehearsal for over 230 young men from high schools from all over Southern Calif., will culminate in a joint performance with the Masters that is open to the public.
