In just three short weeks, we will be flying down to Houston to participate in the SAI International Quartet Competition for our very first time. It’s hard to believe, but it’s true – we will be walking across the stage and competing with 45 other quartets from around the world, all of whom are at the top of their game and are the best there is in women’s barbershop music. Wow!!!
As we head into these last few weeks, we thought we’d share with you some of the ins and outs of what it takes to prepare for this competition. Mind you, we’ve never actually competed at this competition before, but we feel pretty well prepared, because (1), we have been to Regional competition lots of times and we have a pretty good system worked out, and (2), we have lots of friends around us in our local region who have been to this contest and they’ve all been so helpful to us.
So in the next few days, look for a series of articles about how we have prepared musically, logistically, mentally, financially, and emotionally for this upcoming event. As we’ve said before, “It’s all about the journey.” And what a journey it has been!
