Announcing two extra-special coaching events for IABS members: get these in your diaries now! Bootcamp, our ever-popular weekend for choruses large and small, returns to Athlone on 3/4 March. For quartets, we are planning a special focused coaching day in Dublin on Sunday 15 April.
Bootcamp 2018: Athlone 3-4 March
This year we have a superb faculty lineup of some 10 specialists who will be able to give your chorus and your director 1:1 coaching on your own repertoire songs. This could be a great opportunity for you to tune up your chorus repertoire and kick-start your convention songs with specialist tuition in Music, Singing and Performance.
If you do not sing with a local chorus you will have the opportunity to sing in the Grand IABS Mixed Chorus. Two new mixed-voice arrangements are available NOW (see sidebar) and you will receive 1:1 coaching from category specialists.
Our educators for the weekend:
:: REGISTRATION fee:
€25 per person.
:: Catering arrangements:
BRING YOUR OWN LUNCHES. We are looking into supplying tea/coffee at morning break and lunchtime – more to follow.
Quartet Coaching Day 2018
This will take place on Sunday April 15th in Dublin. (Venue to be confirmed). Your quartet will receive 1:1 coaching from barbershop specialists on your own choice of repertoire.
Further application details will follow shortly.
