In 1994, JAD began hosting a weekend long training camp aimed at putting the best quartet in the District in front of some of the best coaches in the Society.  JAD invests in and sponsors the Top Gun program annually to help the top quartet talent grow.  Participation is by invitation only, and there is a tuition that covers room, board, and the travel expenses of the coaches.  

The Johnny Appleseed District is one of the 17 North American districts and an affiliate /associate entity of the Society for the Preservation and Encouragement of Barber Shop Quartet Singing in America, Inc. aka the Barbershop Harmony Society.  Founded in 1944, we are a nonprofit organization registered in the State of Ohio.  The District comprises all of Ohio, parts of West Virginia, southwest Pennsylvania, and one enlightened chapter in Kentucky with over 40 chapters.
