We will also offer a “Score for Evaluations” only session, INVITATIONAL, for ALL choruses/quartets who do not wish to compete and to all singing groups (Seniors quartets, Mixed quartets, Female Quartets, Female Choruses, and Mixed Choruses) who would like to receive your personal score sheet and up to a 60-minute coaching or a 30-minute evaluation-only session. We just need YOU there to participate! There will be something for everyone! ALL male/female/mixed quartets MUST be BHS members EXCEPT FOR youth quartets (mixed, male & female) from college-age down.
District Championship Competitions AND all Prelim sessions will officially begin in Fall 2020. More information will be forthcoming following the 2020 Spring Convention.
PLEASE REMEMBER, EVALUATION/COACHING CHOICES will be sent out to the chorus/quartet contacts 2-3 weeks prior to contest by email. BUT YOU MUST INDICATE ON YOUR BARBERSCORE ENTRY FORM IF YOU WANT AN EVALUATION OR COACHING SESSION!
Jim will be sending out weekly reminders as to our progress and to help light fires under some of you who like to procrastinate. And we want you to have a grand experience at this 2020 Dixie Spring Convention. Bring your family and friends to enjoy the very best that DIXIE DISTRICT has to offer!
