The ScotianAires will compete against barbershop choruses from across Atlantic Canada on June 3 as Harmony Inc. holds its Area Convention and Contests (AC&C) at Mount Allison University in Sackville, New Brunswick.
The event is part of a series of regional contests across North America leading up to the International Convention and Contests, which will take place in Providence, Rhode Island in November 2016.
In addition to the chorus contest, there will also be a contest for quartets. In 2015, the ScotianAires’ quartet, Tonic! won first place in the AC&C quartet competition and will be competing again in Sackville in June. The ScotianAires placed third in last year’s chorus competition; both the ScotianAires and Tonic! qualified to compete at the international level.
A popular feature of AC&C is “Fun Night”, which will take place on June 4 this year. “Fun Night” provides an opportunity for choruses to show off their creativity by singing a song and wearing costumes related to a specific theme. This year’s theme is “Fairy Tales” – watch this page next month to find out what the ScotianAires came up with!
