Music Educator Visit

Hello barbershoppers!

 My name is Mike O’Neill and I work as a Music Educator for the Barbershop Harmony Society.  I have an exciting trip planned to the LAND O’ LAKES District and I wanted to be sure to extend this personal invitation to you so you were aware of this FREE, FUN, EXCITING opportunity!

 During the week of May 21st, I will be traveling through the “Red Carpet” division visiting various chapters who are hosting a MULTI CHAPTER EVENT!  This is a FREE event for you, hosted by the chapters listed below…all you have to do is get there!  Maybe members of your chapter would want to carpool and make a fun “road trip” out of it?! These Town Hall meetings are always more fun with lots of barbershoppers participating and it would be well worth an extra night of barbershop that week!

 Basically a Town Hall / Multi Chapter event is an evening of FUN, learning, discussion, and fraternity…all the while enjoying our beloved hobby of barbershop! 

·         Learn a new song!

·         Learn more about your voice through some excellent vocal technique exercises

·         Sing lots of tags!

·         Sing through Barberpole Cat songs

·         Discussion topics can include

o   How to enhance the overall chapter meeting experience

o   How to recruit and retain members

o   For those who compete, how can I understand better the various categories anyway

o   What’s going on with the BHS HQ lately

o   Anything else you want to talk about! 

·         Hang out with barbershoppers you usually only see once or twice a year

·         OR…meet many new friends / barbershoppers

·         Find new potential quartet mates!

·         SO MUCH MORE!

 Hopefully you can make one of the following MULTI CHAPTER events!
