All choruses and quartets coming to HCNW for coaching will be invited to sing on stage during our Saturday Night Show.

in order for HCNW to work with you and get your group(s) scheduled
and in our calendar no later than May 10th.  

CHORUS COACHING

Would your chorus like to come to HCNW and receive some chorus coaching sessions?  If the answer is “Yes” or “maybe” – then read on!

  • There is no requirement for a minimum number of participants in a chorus coming for coaching, but if a chorus brings 12 or less, they need to have all four parts represented.
  • Chorus Director gets free tuition when the chorus comes for chorus coaching.
  • Choruses are also encouraged to use an Angel Fund, or some other means of financial support, along with the discounts, to make sure that any member who wants to go can actually participate.

steps to make it happen:

Gathering Information:  
Chorus identifies one person to be the Chorus Liaison with HCNW.  This person will contact coaching@harmonycollege.net to discuss their situation, level of interest, and to answer any questions.

Determine the number of coaching sessions:
Chorus Liaison talks with the chorus leaders to identify the number of coaching sessions desired for the chorus, with general preference for sessions: e.g., “We can’t be there for Friday afternoon,” “We prefer Sunday morning,” etc..  

  • Choruses are urged to sign up for coaching in no more than three or four class sessions leaving time for chorus members and director to also take valuable classes, and/or quartets to get coaching.

Confirm Chorus Intent:
As soon as possible, the Chorus Liaison will need to notify HCNW via coaching@harmonycollege.net, confirming that indeed the chorus does want to come to HCNW for chorus coaching and classes.

 

Selection of Coaching Sessions:
The HCNW schedule for the year will be released by mid-February showing what is being offered in each class session.  The chorus may want to look over the schedule and select the sessions where they’d prefer to have the chorus coached.

 

Reaffirm Chorus Intent:
After reviewing the schedule with the chorus, the chorus liaison will need to notify HCNW via coaching@harmonycollege.net as to which sessions they prefer to be assigned coaching, thus reaffirming their intent to come for chorus coaching.  

 

Provide List of Chorus Members:
Chorus Liaison will need to fill out the Chorus Coaching Sign-up Form and send it to coaching@harmonycollege.net.  The information provided on the form will help HCNW track registrations as they are completed.

May 10th Deadline:
Everyone coming to HCNW will need to register before May 10th. At that time, HCNW will assign coaches for your coaching sessions. 

QUARTET COACHING

Would your quartet like to come to HCNW and receive some chorus coaching sessions?  The steps are the same as for the choruses, but since there are only four in a quartet, it’s definitely quicker to finish the process and know that you’re all set for a great weekend of coaching.

steps to make it happen:

Gathering Information:  
Your quartet will need to identify one person to be the Liaison with HCNW.  This person will send an email to  coaching@harmonycollege.net  explainging your quartet’s situation, level of interest, and to answer any questions.

Determine the number of coaching sessions:
The quartet should determine the number of coaching sessions you want during the weekend. Quartet often find that 3 or 4 sessions scattered over the weekend is more than enough coaching, leaving time for your foursome to take other classes.

Confirm Intent:
As soon as possible, notify HCNW confirming that indeed the quartet indeed wants to attend HCNW and schedule some quartet coaching session.

Selection of Coaching Sessions:
Once the HCNW schedule is released in mid-February, the quartet should look over the schedule and select the sessions preferrable  for coaching. Then notify HCNW, thus reaffirming the quartet’s intent to come for chorus coaching.  

Provide List of Quartet Members:
Please send one email with their four names, their parts, and their email address.

May 10th Deadline:
All four quartet members will need to register before May 10th. At the time,  HCNW will quickly assign coaches for your coaching sessions.
