SATURDAY, November 7
Un-contestEnjoy performances by many of your favorite choruses and quartets throughout the day with hosts Anne Bureau and Ig Jakovac.
*Panel Discussion: Taste Issues and the Performance Category Join Theresa Weatherbee, HI Performance Category Director, Joe Hunter, former BHS Presentation Category Specialist, and current BHS Performance Category Specialist, Mark Kettner, in a panel discussion on how to navigate the waters of contemporary standards in performance. *Chorus Master Class: A Cappella Showcase is so very proud to be the 2019 Harmony Incorporated International Chorus Champions and, like so many of you, they have moved their rehearsals online. This year, instead of sharing with you what they did to leading up to their championship they want to use this master class to share with you some of the many ways they keep their community engaged, learning, growing, and having fun, all online. *You Be The Judge with Alan Gordon, Tony Sparks, & Sandi WrightDo you want to test your skills at judging a contest? Have questions about how a score is determined? Are you new and want to get insight into what the judges are thinking? Join 12-year Singing Judge and 2-time BHS quartet champion, Alan Gordon; 10-year Music Judge and internationally-ranked quartet medalist Tony Sparks; and 21-year HI member, 51-year SAI member, 11-year BHS member, HI and BHS Performance Judge, and SAI Showmanship Judge Sandi Wright as we watch videos, score ANY category you wish (and even change from video to video), and discuss HOW and WHY a performance might score as it does. No experience necessary and YOU won’t be judged.
*Quartet Master Class with 2019 Harmony Queens, Hot PursuitCome join Hot Pursuit as they share what makes them a successful and cohesive long-distance quartet. They'll discuss their passions and work ethic and how both can be invaluable to a quartet personality and longevity.
Parade of ChampionsThe 2020 Parade of Champions will be an amazing show, featuring 12 championship quartets, including our 2019 Queens, HOT PURSUIT, and our 2019 Chorus Champions, A CAPPELLA SHOWCASE, directed by Jordan Travis! The show will also honor our quartets that are celebrating special anniversaries, and will feature some special guests making an appearance to shout out to HI! The show will end with a beautiful virtual chorus of our Harmony Queens all joining together in song! It will be a wonderful night, and a show that you will not want to miss!!
Closing CeremoniesOur closing ceremonies will feature virtual chorus performances by the Minor Chords and International Chorus. We'll also preview IC&C 2021 with a special Chocolate Martini mixologist session and toast to 2021 – which can’t get here soon enough!
