Building on the successes of the past five years, we are proud to host the 2020 HEP/LA, to be held February 7-8, 2020, in St. Joseph, Missouri.

The CSD HEP School and Leadership Academy is a great event with a lot to offer. Whether you are an experienced quartetter, an incoming chapter officer, or an individual who just wants to be a better singer, there is something for you!

Everyone is welcome!  Men, women, quartets (men's, women's, or mixed!), seniors, youth, CSD'ers, folks from other places … you name it, you’re welcome. All quartets who come for coaching in 2020 are promised two (possibly three), 1.5-hour sessions with different coaches.

HEP School truly has something for everyone; top-notch quartet coaching, education on both the musical and administrative sides, and the best networking, fellowship, and tag singing you will find!

To close the event, all attendees of HEP School are invited to attend the Saturday Night Show, in which all the quartets  perform and demonstrate what they learned in their coaching sessions throughout the day.


Every year, we have a great lineup of classes, taught by some of the best teachers around.  These classes will run throughout the day on Saturday.  All classes are one hour.  For details, check out the Classes page.


Central States District continues to distinguish itself as the home of Internationally renowned teachers, coaches, and musical leaders.  We are proud to once again feature these talented people.  To learn more about our HEP School faculty, click here.
