Pan-Pacific 2023 - Sing with the Champs

Sing with the Champs

Sing with the Champs is a fun opportunity for anyone to replace a voice part in a Headline Quartet and sing a song with them. For instance, if you think you are a gun Lead, the quartet’s Lead will stand back while you sing a song with the quartet’s Tenor, Bass, and Baritone.

We have allocated 2½ hours on the afternoon of Friday 15 September for this activity. It will take place on the main venue stage - this period falls between the end of the Quartet Semi-Finals and the Quartet Finals. You get to sing with our wonderful Headline Quartets and at the same time contribute $25 to the Barbershop Foundation of NZ, a charitable organisation that exists to promote barbershop singing in New Zealand including helping up-and-coming leaders get to Harmony University in the USA. Your donation of NZ$25 can be made in cash or by credit/debit card via an onsite Point of Sale machine (EFTPOS machine).

We are not going to have a pre-convention booking system, but we will ask singers to fill in a planning sheet at the venue so they may register their interest and say which song they would like to sing.

And now to the icing on the cake. Not only will we have Instant Classic and GQ to choose from, but we will have them performing in mixed quartets and an octet. Get in there!
