BHS Announces help for quartets

BHS has recently announced a new resource for quartets to accompany the Guidebook for Performing Quartets, a sort-able Subject Matter Expert (SME) database.

Members can access this by logging into the Doc Center. This evolving database provides a comprehensive directory for quartets (or choruses) to locate marketing and technology resources, as well as contacts for additional coaching opportunities.

Plans are already in the works for 2019, which will include adding to and polishing this Subject Matter Expert database so that it will continue to be a relevant and useful tool for our registered quartets. In addition, we will be introducing new exclusive benefits that will help us enhance the value of being in a registered quartet outside of contest. We’ll keep you updated on the plans as they develop.

This project was developed by Caki Gray, Director of Membership, Danny Becker, Quartet Success Manager, and Volunteer Project Coordinator Walt Lammert. If you have any questions about this project, contact them at [email protected].
