Join us in Charlotte for the 2020 Carolinas District Spring Convention, on March 20-22. We will be returning to the convenient all-under-one-roof format at the hotel formerly known as the Renaissance Charlotte Suites Hotel. It is currently the “Charlotte Airport Hotel”, and by February will be a Hilton brand. Our hosts for the weekend will be the Gold Standard Chorus.
The main activities for the weekend will be the International qualifying contests for both choruses and quartets. The quartet contests start Friday evening with International quartet qualifier semi-finals and the International Senior Quartet qualifier. The contest to determine the District Chorus representative for the 2021 International contest will be decided on Saturday. Saturday evening will conclude with the International quartet qualification finals and the spectacular showcase featuring the top competitors from the weekend. Youth quartets and choruses are also eligible to compete for District titles. And of course, there will be the various chapter hospitality suites and singing to all hours of the morning.
Lodging We are out of rooms at the headquarters hotel. As of 2/27, we are working with the hotel to secure rooms at a discount at a nearby DoubleTree. We have not received the link to DoubleTree yet, but hope to have it Monday. To receive the hotel discount on your convention registration, enter ‘2020’ in the hotel confirmation number field. We will update that with the final confirmation numbers once they are received.
Again this year: convention registrants staying at the headquarters hotel or the DoubleTree will receive a $10 discount on their convention all-events registration. (limit 2 per room). Book your room first and then enter the confirmation number when purchasing your registrations.
