Let's Sing Again!
Jumpstart your commitment to MORE MUSIC in 2012
on Friday night, January 20, by learning a brand new regional song: LET'S SING AGAIN
. All are welcome to join in a big chorus rehearsal party. We'll have a team of music leaders to assist us. The same group will have the opportunity to sing and be coached by Darlene Rogers, our renowned International Faculty for the Adventures in Music weekend. Check the AIM schedule
for time and room in San Mateo.
Go to the regional website
and find the sheet music and learning tracks for all parts. Review and enjoy; plan to come that Friday night as prepared as possible. You can hear a fabulous recording of this on Ambiance's cd I HEAR A RHAPSODY. It's going to be a fun, rousing addition to regional songs that you can sing with ALL your singing sisters. Contact Sharon Carlson

The QDQ Parade - and the Sweet Expectations YWIH contest
The Saturday evening event at January AIM now has a new look; it is the QDQ Parade. It will replace the Novice Quartet Parade and the Double Quartet Contest. Now there will be ONE parade of both Novice Quartets and Double Quartets with one drawing for order of appearance. It will happen Saturday night right after the Sweet Expectations contest for our YWIH quartets.
Participants will receive written comments from Region 12’s top coaches, and they will receive performance level letters (B, C, etc.) No points will be given. The panel of coaches will not declare a winner based on performance points. Each group of four or eight singers will be expected to sing two songs in the barbershop style.
