District Convention 2019

(From Jim Campbell, VP/Events, Rocky Mountain District)

Make your plans now to join your fellow Barbershoppers for the RMD Fall 2019 Convention in Cheyenne, Wyoming!

As usual, there will be competitions for the District Championship for Men’s Quartets and Choruses.  And at this years Convention, for the very first time, the Rocky Mountain District will also host competitions for Mixed Harmony Quartets and Mixed Harmony Choruses.  These groups, composed of both men and women, will compete for the title of RMD Champion in each classification.  Judging will be done by the same panel that judges the Men’s Quartets and Choruses, and will use the same judging criteria.

In addition, in further support of Everyone in Harmony, any Women’s Quartets or Choruses who would like to appear onstage for score and evaluation during the contest sessions are welcome.  However, there will not be a competition or any winners chosen in these classifications, and score sheets will not be published.

All competing groups (Men and Mixed Harmony Quartets and Choruses) must be registered members of the Barbershop Harmony Society, and be composed of active BHS members.
