Official RMD Fall 2022 Contest Format
RMD VP Contest & Judging
Greetings to all singers in the Rocky Mountain District!
This year, Rocky Mountain District will be having our first all voices quartet and chorus contests. What does that mean? All quartet and chorus contests will be open to any singer that is a member of BHS and the Rocky Mountain District.
The contest will be held October 7-9, 2022 in conjunction with our fabulous fall convention at the Hyatt Regency Denver Tech Center in Denver, Colorado. A more detailed schedule will be coming out when we have a better idea of how many competitors there will be. Quartets need to be ready for competition by late afternoon on Friday, Oct. 7th. Only requests to sing first will be granted in the order in which they are received. PLEASE PLAN AHEAD and be ready to go at least 45 minutes before your scheduled stage time.
