About the event
- We are planning for a full convention experience including contests, shows and fringe events/marketplace
- It will provide opportunity to reconnect with friends and fellow singers for a HUGE celebration of our community and hobby
We are planning for full quartet semi and finals as usual, for qualifying quartets from Prelims, as well as the full chorus contest with opportunities for all clubs to experience the Convention stage and the most supportive audience anywhereWhat is Convention?
Convention is an annual opportunity for all members, family, and friends to get together. It is essentially a chance for quartets and choruses to compete in a supportive and friendly way and is often a riot of colour and complex choreography.
In addition to competition, Convention also includes a schedule of education sessions - LABBS FRINGE - led by our own education team, often supported by external educators and our VIP guests. All of this is topped off with two fabulous shows, showcasing our new champions and amazing guests. As if that wasn't enough, each evening sees an opportunity to Afterglow - a traditional end to any barbershopping day when singers and guests meet to chat and sing until the early hours - with old friends and new. The event is open to all, with the opportunity to drop in for a day or be emersed in both competition and education sessions for a full fun packed 3 day weekend.
