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!
Coaching door Rod Sgrignoli
Op 20 september, voor de Harmony College van BiNG, is Rod Sgrignoli in Dortmund om kwartetten en koren te coachen. Veel Duitse kwartetten mogen kort voor de Coesfeld Cup Contest echter niet gecoacht worden. Daarom is er ruimte in de agenda voor Nederlandse koren en kwartetten. BiNG heeft een ruimte in Dortmund ter beschikking, maar bij voldoende belangstelling kan hij ook naar Nederland komen. De kosten bedragen €120 voor een coaching van ca 2 uur plus €50 resikosten.
