Barbershop Singing is Back! Join us on November 12-13th in Hendersonville, NC for the 2021 Fall Festival for Carolinas Barbershop Harmony.
Is it a festival or a convention? Both. In 2019, The House of Delegates approved having chorus competitions in both the Spring and Fall to allow choruses more opportunities to compete.
The contest venue will be the Thomas Auditorium on the campus of Blue Ridge Community College in Flat Rock, NC. The “headquarters” hotel is the Cascades Mountain Resort in Hendersonville.
The action kicks off Friday afternoon with tours and classes that are still being developed. At 5pm, everyone is invited to the Thomas Auditorium at the Blue Ridge Conference Hall, on the campus of Blue Ridge Community College for the Presidents Circle Dinner (choose your meal when your register). This is also the contest venue. Following dinner, hear the District’s best quartets in the first round as they compete for District champion. After the semi-finals, sing tags or visit with your buddies back at the hotel. Saturday, attend classes and be sure to see our first Fall Festival Chorus Competition. After a meal break, come back for the Quartet Finals. Conclude the evening with the spectacular Saturday Night Showcase featuring the top competitors from the weekend. And of course, there will be the various chapter hospitality suites, woodshedding, and singing to all hours of the morning at the Cascades Mountain Resort, located at 201 Sugarloaf Road in Hendersonville.
Note – as of this writing, the Cascades Mountain Resort is sold out, but rooms are available at the nearby Hampton Inn, Ramada, and Best Western on Sugarloaf Road.
