MBHA is pleased to report that several BHS District Contests AND Harmony, Inc., Area Contests are hosting mixed quartets and choruses this spring! Many of these contests have already happened, and this coming weekend (May 25-26), we can look forward to Evergreen District’s Division III contest! We encourage all competing mixed quartets to consider joining MBHA (if you haven’t already done so), even if your District doesn’t REQUIRE you to do so! There are many advantages to being a MBHA member! See our Membership tab above for more information.
EVERGREEN DISTRICT DIVISION III CONTEST: May 25-26, 2018 in Calgary, AB. The theme of this contest is “An A Cappella Celebration!” There will be a cappella groups from Alberta high schools competing for prizes in addition to the adult quartet and chorus competitors. After the “ice-breaker” event on Friday evening, the contests will take place on Saturday beginning at 9:30 am. Further information about this contest weekend may be found here, including details about convention hotels, schedules, and tickets.
