Un-Conventional 2020!

BHNZ announces FREE registration!

No HEA this year. No Pan Pac convention this year. BUT you are invited to attend a weekend of barbershop called Un-Conventional 2020!

So many of our barbershop brothers and sisters around the world (and even across the ditch) are still stuck in their homes. They are still making do with Zoom rehearsals trying to make the best of a bad situation. How lucky we are in New Zealand to be able to gather in fellowship and song. We have the freedom to jump in a car or on a plane and join together to sing and socialise!

Because of Covid-19 impacts, the BHNZ Board has agreed to subsidise the full amount of registration so as to maximise the possibility of your participation. You just need to cover your travel and accommodation costs. You will enjoy a combo of group singing, un-contests for quartets and choruses, education classes, PVIs and quartet coaching with our home-grown talented Faculty, and lots of fun and fellowship. Of course, the Saturday Night In-House Show promises to be a highlight.

If you are in an established quartet, why not get some coaching?  (We have limited number of coaches so to make sure every quartet gets a good dollop of coaching we need to limit the number of quartets.  So established quartets only, please, (i.e. you have aspirations to compete, you have regular rehearsals, etc.). To register click on this link [https://hea.barbershopharmony.nz/registration2020]. More information will be sent in due course.
(Note: We cannot accept any more quartets for coaching at Christchurch.)
