LET THE FALL CONTESTS BEGIN!

MBHA is pleased to report that there are contests this fall that will be open to mixed quartets and choruses! The first of these is this coming weekend (September 20-22), when we can look forward to the Rocky Mountain District’s Fall District Convention. 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.

ROCKY MOUNTAIN DISTRICT FALL CONVENTION:  September 20-22, 2018, in Colorado Springs, CO.  The contest is open to both mixed quartets and choruses, and will be held at the beautiful Ent Center for the Arts at the University of Colorado, Colorado Springs campus.  Mixed quartet Shaken & Stirred will be competing in the quartet contest.  Click here for detailed information about event activities and contests, location, and hotel availability.
