2005 Chicago Harmony Sweepstakes - preliminary info
The 2005 Chicago Harmony Sweepstakes is coming up in March, and we're starting to gather information about eligible a cappella groups. This e-mail is going out to as many Midwest groups as we know of, and we're trying to fill in the gaps in our "knowledge base". Some groups may have changed their contact information - please forward this e-mail to your main contact, and let us know their name and e-mail address. Some groups may have changed e-mail addresses, or added a new website - we'd like to know about that. And a few groups, sadly, may no longer be together - in that case, let us know if you'd like us to remove your e-mail address from our list.
A more official entry form will be following this e-mail, but here's a few things you should know in the meantime:
- The show is Saturday, March 26th, 2005 at the North Shore Center for the Performing Arts in Skokie , IL , at 7:30 pm.
- The deadline for receiving entries is January 7th, 2005.
- All groups will need to submit an audition recording with at least two songs. (CDs or MP3s strongly preferred)
- Groups must have at least three and no more than seven members.
About 8 or 9 groups will be selected from the entries to perform in the March regional contest. If your entry is selected, we will need a picture of your group, and an entry fee of $10 per person per group.
If you've entered the Sweeps before and your information hasn't changed, you're all set. But if you're new to the Sweeps, or if you'd like to update your group contact information in any way, please reply to this e-mail. We try to do as much via e-mail as possible (thus the importance of digital recordings). And spread the word to any other a cappella groups you know - the more the merrier!
606 N. Wilshire Dr .
Mount Prospect , IL 60056
For those of you who've entered before - please note that the phone number and mailing address are new since last year.
Thanks for your interest in the Harmony Sweepstakes A Cappella Festival.
