Countdown to Start Date
BOD & HOD Meetings held May 13 at Stockton Best Western (see below)
The Far Western District will hold its International Quartet Preliminary Contest in Stockton, CA on May 14. This contest is open to all quartets, and groups scoring 76% or higher will earn an invitation to the 2022 International Quartet Contest in Charlotte.
In addition to the official prelims, we’ll have an opportunity for both quartets and choruses to perform in a festival setting. This is a great opportunity for your ensemble to get stage time in front of an enthusiastic audience, receive scores from the judging panel, and get a hands-on coaching session following the performance. Scores from the festival will not be published – just provided to the individual performers so you can continue to track your own progress towards your goals.
In order to participate in the Quartet Prelims or the Chorus/Quartet Festival your group must first register to compete by going to the BHS Member Center and using the new Barberscore entry tool. Quartet/Chorus registration for both the prelims and the festival will open on March 11. The contest entry is now closed.
All Prelim/Festival participants and guests must ALSO purchase an EVENT Registration HERE.
All events are open to Men's, Women's, & Mixed quartets/choruses.
ALSO NOTE: We are changing from Convention Name Badges to Wristbands. For those who like to have a name badge, we suggest you wear your chorus or quartet badge.
