Creating a Common Resonance – Maximize Chord Ringing and Musicality with Cary Burns

Nebraska A - 10:00am

Learn simple, effective, and unusual techniques to lock and ring chords at the next level.  You’ve probably learned about vowels, posture, breathing, tuning, etc.  That’s a lot to remember.  These techniques will allow you to simplify your thought process so you can spend more time creating artistry while ringing those barbershop chords. 

Contest entry

Quartets & Choruses may now submit their entries for the spring contests by visiting www.barberscore.com. Deadline to enter is 3/30/18.

senior chorus information

From CSD President John Marshall:

CSD senior members, I am excited about a new program called the “Senior Chorus Contest”. You will find the rules here and I hope many of you will be excited about getting a group together to try and earn bragging rights to the first Championship Senior Chorus. The time is short, but doable to I know some of you will band together and make this happen.  I would love to sing in one of those groups!
