There will be two chorus rehearsal rooms available for use by competing choruses on Thursday 28 and Friday 29 September.

Both rooms will be fully equiped with seven sets of four step risers and will be available for use from 8am to 5pm each day in 1 hour blocks of time (plus a 10 minute changeover time). It is expected these rooms will be in high demand and time allocations will need to be fairly distributed amongst the Australian, New Zealand and Japanese Choruses who want to make use of them.

Each Chorus requesting the use of one of these rooms will be allocated a one hour session although it can't be assured that your requested time will be available. Every effort will be made to allocate a time as close as possible to your requested time. If a second session is desired, these will be allocated once all choruses, who have requested a time, have been allocated their first hour. Any times still available after the two rounds of allocations will be advertised on the Convention website and will be available on a first-come basis

Cost for these rooms will be $100 per one hour slot payable directly to BHA.

To apply for the use of one of these rehearsal rooms please email Dick Bushell on dickbushell804@gmail.com indicating your requirements and preference for times. 

PLEASE NOTE : We are aware that some choruses have already indicated their requirements but it would be appreciated if you would resubmit any requests made prior to this notification to make sure everyone covered.

Applications will close on the 31 August with the final time allocations advised soon their after.
