Saturday, June 18 will be jam packed with learning and fun. Joan will teach us about important barbershop skills like unity, synchronization, and visual communication, coach directors and members of the SASS Chorus. She will also teach directors about setting expectations and how to get the chorus to achieve shared goals.

Saturday morning, June 18
Saturday will begin at 8:30AM (tentative) with physical and vocal warm-ups for all, then we will split into learning tracks for the remainder of the morning.

Directors will spend quality time with Joan Boutilier in the morning. Members will work with regional faculty on vocal skills through PVI’s or as part of the SASS Chorus focusing on three regional songs – Locomotion, One Fine Day, and It’s the Music that Brings Us Together. Quartets can also sign up to receive private coaching from Regional Faculty coaches.

Saturday afternoon
We will offer a class in vocal and visual communication skills from Joan Boutilier. Joan will then work the SASS Chorus and directors on building, sound, unity, and visual communication with the SASS Chorus.
The workshop ends at 4:30PM (tentative) and members are free to return home or stay for an optional Afterglow featuring more singing and fun beginning at 7PM (tentative). (*Dinner not provided.)

Chorus leadership teams are invited to a reception with Joan from 5:30 to 6:30PM (tentative).
