Sing Into Spring 2020!
New Decade, New Location for Sing Into Spring 2020!
Your Area 1 Council team is always working diligently to listen to your feedback and to use that information to help make your experience as a member of Harmony Inc. the best it can be.
During Strategic Planning discussions held last June, the Council looked at a map of where each of our current choruses is located. A copy of that map is available at this link. A conversation followed about the location of our area education events and whether it might be possible to find a location that was geographically more centralized than Moncton – at least on a trial basis.
Following some investigation and a site-visit by a small team of Council members, it was determined that the Debert Hospitality Centre in Debert, NS would be a great alternative – and the owner/operators were very enthusiastic to work with us to make that happen. For those of you who aren’t familiar with the area, Debert is approximately 20 km north-west of Truro.
Council discussed the facility and projected costs at the October Council meeting and unanimously decided to go ahead and – on a trial basis — book The Centre as the location for Sing Into Spring 2020 which is scheduled to be held on Saturday, April 4, 2020.
One of the most attractive “selling points” of choosing the Centre is its on-site accommodations which will allow us to offer our attendees the option of travelling to Debert on Friday, April 3 to avoid an early-morning commute for Saturday’s workshop. Not to mention, the rooms all connect indoors to several common areas members will have access to socialize in that evening while your Area Council is hard at work holding their spring meeting!
Because it is also a professional catering facility, as a part of our booking package, the Centre will also be providing attendees with our nutrition breaks and a hot lunch (served cafeteria-style) on Saturday, avoiding the need to pack a lunch and giving us even more time to socialize together.
Best of all, because this is a well-reviewed but “low-frills” facility, we believe the cost to attend Sing Into Spring 2020 will be less than what most members have been spending to attend our previous events in Moncton.
BUT WAIT – THERE’S MORE!
In case you didn’t hear it announced at Harmony Harvest, our guest coach for Sing Into Spring 2020 is Jordan Travis – Artistic Director of Acapella Showcase and Toronto Northern Lights choruses and owner/operator of The Complete Singer. We can’t wait to work with Jordan during what’s sure to be a fun and song-filled day of barbershop learning and laughs.
More information about the song we’ll be working on as well as registration fees and information will be sent to you through your chorus President in the coming weeks so save that date and keep an eye on your In Box!
