Alle koren en kwartetten van DABS hebben zich inmiddels aangesloten bij Holland Harmony: DABS is nu volledig op gegaan in Holland Harmony, Dutch association of Barbershop Singers. Er is nu dus één organisatie voor alle barbershopzangers in Nederland!
Uitnodiging BinG! HaCo
Dear fellow WHC representatives,
On behalf of BinG! I am very happy to invite you to be part of our Harmony College this year. This is the first year in which BinG! is able to offer participation to non-members. We have had a big demand in the past from our members and this educational event was always booked out within a few hours. After continuous expansion we have now found an appropriate location which also allows us to invite fellow barbershoppers from abroad to share the fun and excitement with us.
Please note the most important facts:
Thursday, September 26 from 2.30pm until Sunday, September 29, 3pm.
We will be meeting in an exciting, modernized location (http://www.diejugendherbergen.de/die-jugendherbergen-auf-einen-blick/Oberwesel/portrait) right by the river Rhine: Jugendgästehaus am Schönberg, Oberwesel, which is in the area of the World Heritage Site "Mittelrhein". Closest international airport is Frankfurt (1hr).
Our international faculty
Tim Waurick (USA), Rich Knight (USA), Dusty Schleier(USA), James Estes(USA), Barry Towner(CAN), Jan Alexanderson(SWE), Patrick Brown(CAN), Sharon Towner(CAN), Jordan Travis(CAN), Tom Metzger(USA), Stuart Sides(NL), Rob Campbell(USA/NL), Rod Scrignoli(USA), Camilla Ljung(SWE).
The Coesfeld Cup quartet competition (preliminary contest for the national quartet contest in 2014) on thursday night; open stage on saturday night; final concert with the workshop choirs on sunday noon. Classes, seminars and coachings from thursday afternoon on throughout the days. Very long afterglows with lots of singing, at least one conga-line and German beer.
For representatives we offer a reduced rate of €230 for registration, lodging and food during the event. This includes teach tracks and music for the workshop choirs. (Rates for non-members are otherwise €285)
If you are interested
If you are interested, please let me know. We will have the offer of classes to be booked soon. We will assist in registering prior to the official online registration for members (June 9, 2013). Registration will otherwise be open to non-members from June 17, 2013. I am aware that it is very unlikely for those of you from outside Europe to attend, but I want everyone to be informed and invited anyway. One never knows where travels take us! So, again: In the name of the board of BinG!: We would be more than happy to welcome you!
