Would you or one of your members want to have the Best Seat In The House (BSITH) at our upcoming joint Spring Convention with the Illinois District, April 25-26 in Davenport, Iowa? The BSITH is in the Judging Area -- the front row! You will be with the Judges and be able to observe every gesture and the dynamics of each performing quartet and chorus.

You may ask "Why would I want to get the Best Seat In The House?"
In an effort to foster interest in the BHS Judging program and to benefit the Harmony Foundation, we are auctioning off a seat in the judging area (aka 'the pit') for each contest session and evals. Funds received go to Harmony Foundation International to help defray the expenses for such efforts as the Collegiate Quartet Contest, Youth Chorus Festival, Youth Harmony Workshops, Harmony Explosion Camps, and Harmony University Scholarships for Music Educators. Your participation in the BSITH supports the Society's youth program.

Here is the webpage address -- http://www.bestseat.org/CSD and place your bid.
Answers to the Frequently Asked Questions are at -- http://www.bestseat.org/?FAQ

Read the attachment about the experience that Barbershopper, Andrew Kvasnica, had in the BSITH at the CSD's 2013 Fall Convention. Andrew is a member of the Manhattan, KS Chapter and is the chapter's Music and Performance Vice President.

The BSITH is -- BETTER THAN FRONT ROW!

Sing-cerely,

Harvey Kiser
CSD Manager of the BSITH
and
CSD, IPP

This Fall, Harmony Foundation and the Contest & Judging program are teaming up to auction off a single seat at each & every contest session, including Division, District, Prelims and International. If you've ever wanted to test out your judging chops, you can bid on a seat at your District contest and be a "Judge for a Day." Bidding is open now for your upcoming District contest, at www.Harmonize.com/BestSeatInTheHouse.

Minimum opening bids for each seat are $40, with minimum $5 incremental raises.
Funds received go to Harmony Foundation International to help defray the expenses for such efforts as the Collegiate Quartet Contest, Youth Chorus Festival, Youth Harmony Workshops, Harmony Explosion Camps, and Harmony University Scholarships for Music Educators.

2. A special guest judge name tag.
3. A complete set of judging and scoring forms for your selected judging category.
