RMHC coaching and classes will occur on Saturday. We are also working to add some classes to Friday afternoon based on faculty availability. A FANTASTIC MEDALIST QUARTET is currently being solidified for the weekend and will be announced soon!!! New and exciting class topics will be offered along with the normal basics of singing and performing along with management and organization topics.
RMHC will also offer chorus and quartet coaching in a Top Gun style format, meaning we will bring you the best coaches we have to offer if you bring your energy and willingness to improve! We have been fortunate to have several district choruses with us the last several years and look forward to several more joining us this year. We will have room for at least 4 choruses and 8-10 quartets (in addition to our competitors). Quartets and Choruses will be able to have at least 3 coaching sessions with a variety of faculty. Members of groups present for coaching will be able to attend classes in the blocks that they are not being coached. There will be a lot more info forthcoming soon. Please contact Adam Reimnitz (email@example.com) if you know that your quartet or chorus would like to receive coaching or are interested in private singing or directing instruction.
Saturday night will feature a fun, informal show featuring quartets and choruses that join us for the weekend along with our featured quartet. Overall, it will be a fantastic weekend that you won’t want to miss!! More details and announcements to come soon, including registration opening date!
