Spring Convention & Contest to be held in Pittsburgh, PA
By Greg Swann,
VP Events & Conventions
By now I’m hoping you have made plans to attend the 2014 edition of JAD’s Spring Convention & International Prelims to be held in Pittsburgh, PA April 11 – 13, 2014. If not, it’s not too late to make plans, and you won’t want to miss this great convention! Just call the Crowne Plaza Pittsburgh South at (412) 833-5300, identify yourself as a JAD Barbershopper, and you’re on your way!
In addition to seeing and hearing some great JAD Quartet and chorus performances, you won’t want to miss the special performance by the Peters Township High School Choir, as they take the stage performing two numbers in the barbershop style, directly following our Chorus Contest, and preceding the High School Quartet Contest.
The High School Quartet Contest is a program run by our JAD District Youth in Harmony Committee headed up by Kameron Owens, email@example.com.
The top-scoring high-school competitors have the honor of being declared JAD High-School Champs for the current year. This year’s contest will be taking on the excitement of a high school sporting event as our Convention Chapter Host (Pittsburgh Metro Chapter) and contest venue host Peters Township High School has joined forces to make this High School Quartet Contest a friendly rivalry among many of the high schools in the Greater Pittsburgh Area.
You will also have the opportunity to sing on stage with the JAD Mic- Tester Chorus under the Direction of Jim Bagby, Contest Judge and member of our 1986 International Champs, Rural Route 4. The Mic-Tester Chorus will be rehearsing at the school Saturday morning, and will be singing on stage to kick off the Chorus Contest. If your chapter isn’t competing, be sure your voice is part of the Mic-Tester Chorus!
See you in Pittsburgh!
