2015 Spring Competition Education Class – Sunday Morning Send-Off!

by Risa Page on April 26, 2015 No comments

BloodyMaryMimosaA great time was had by the 100+ attendees to our Sunday morning Education Class – Bloody Marys, Mimosas and Score Sheets: What to Do with the Judges Feedback.

Our energetic co-presenters, Jana Gutenson and Kim Vaughn, provided enlightening insight on ways to interpret what Judges wrote and how to turn that into a plan of action as singers and directors return to Quartet and Chorus life. There was something for every performer who crossed the stage and every registered attendee – vocal production tips ‘n tricks, music selection review, chorus and quartet teamwork and so much more!

The overall Judges’ Observations for Choruses and Quartets have been sent via e-mail to our Regional Quartet contacts, Front Line Directors, and Team Coordinators/Presidents. Also sent were the materials to which Jana and Kim referred, SAI Performance Guidelines and Making the Leap (via Sharon Babb), along with more information on Open Division. These documents and more will soon be available on the Education downloads page or contact Risa Page, Education Coordinator at rmt_education@region21.org to receive them.

It was a relaxing way to learn with coffees, lattes, Mimosas, and customized Bloody Marys in hand and next year we are investigating adding some light snacks so plan to come!

JUNE 2014 – Spring Training for Directors and Musical Leadership – Sharon Babb

Sharon Babb

“Get Your Game On!” was an exciting experience in San Diego with the ever-inspiring Sharon Babb – a Sweet Adeline to the bone who began her career in 1969 right here in Region 21 and has been active ever since as a chapter and regional administrative leader, certified judge in both sound and music, judge specialist in sound, master faculty, chorus and quartet coach, International Board member, and – always and ever – a baritone.

She inspired the attendees through a variety of classes:

Psychology of Competition, Managing in the Moment, Coaching for Sound, Individual Musicianship, IVI Techniques, Teaching through Tags, and much more!

Sharon focused on how to ensure that every director and every member experience these essentials at every rehearsal:

  • HA, HA (laughter/enjoyment/reasons to smile and celebrate),
  • AHA! (learning something knew/refresh a known /skill), and
  • AHHH!  (feeling inspiration and re-dedication to our magnificent art form)

It was a wonderful opportunity to experience Ms. Sharon Babb in an intimate setting at her effervescent best!
