2022 Meredith Bay Barbershop Jamboree August 19-20, 2022

August 19 - August 20

2022 Meredith Bay Barbershop Jamboree

August 19-20, 2022

Are you a fan or curious about Barbershop and share a passion for a cappella? Come see Harmony-on-the-Lake, join the singing, tour the lovely, historic town, and just have fun.  Members and non-members are all welcome and embraced.

The Northeastern District (NED) (http://www.NEDistrict.org) is one of 17 Districts of the Barbershop Harmony Society (http://www.barbershop.org) – representing 45 local chapters/choruses and over 1300 men, women, and mixed-gender barbershop harmony singers. The six chapters in New Hampshire include Laconia, Dover, Concord, Nashua, Keene and Hanover with male and mixed harmony choruses.

Activities for the weekend are outlined on the Jamboree web page (https://www.nedistrict.org/jamboree).  The event is centralized at the Meredith Community Center.  You’ll find singers all over town – in restaurants, shopping areas, parks, the Community Center – rain or shine.  There’s a mini-golf “tournament” planned at Pirate’s Cove, on Saturday morning with singing throughout the course. Later, find performances and impromptu singing at Community Park and Hesky Park, learn a tag at “The Pit,” or maybe catch a quartet while eating dinner (and singing!) in any of the fine Meredith dining spots.

The weekend’s culminating “Great Gathering Show” is planned for Saturday night, starting at 7:00 PM at the air-conditioned MCC, featuring many top notch, award-winning quartets and choruses, various “pick-up” quartets or “VLQs” (very large quartets), and the famous “Afterglow” including refreshments, again by Altrusa, Inc.   Anyone can enjoy the show – either in the audience or performing on-stage. Not quite an open-mic event, but if you love singing and have the interest to try 4-part harmony – you, too, can be a part of the fun.  Learn an easy song or two and join three others as a quartet or be fearless and join the “Everyone In Harmony Jamboree Chorus” on-stage. Anyone can join the show and sing barbershop.

Admit-one registration or ticketing is available online for the weekend including the Saturday show-only; exclusively for $15 now, in advance, at the Jamboree website page.  Show tickets are available at the door for $20.  Buy your Friday dinner and afterglow tickets online, too, although all are also welcome at the door.  All proceeds support your community, local missions, and youth-in-harmony activities.  All may be purchased, including inaugural tee shirts and koozies, at the Community Center anytime during the weekend.
