Early details have now been released of the next Pan Pacific Convention to be held in Auckland in 2020. As with some previous Pan Pac's, this Convention will also coincide with the next BHA National Convention on the same dates and in the same venue although this will be the first time a BHA National Convention has been held outside Australia.
Name of Convention: The convention will be known as “Pan Pac 2020”.
Venue: The contests will be held at the Victory Convention Centre, not far from the CBD, hotels and the waterfront entertainment area. You can see more detail at www.victoryconventioncentre.co.nz .
Dates: The first activities will occur on the morning of Thursday 10 September 2020 and the last activity will be the Farewell Lunch on Sunday 13 September 2020.
An Unusual Feature: This will be the first “Everyone in Harmony” Pan Pac, with contests for Men’s Quartets, Men’s Choruses, Ladies Quartets, Ladies Choruses, Mixed Quartets and Mixed Choruses.
Other activities: The New Zealand Young Singers in Harmony (YSIH) annual convention will take place at the same venue on Tue 8 and Wed 9 September. This will include secondary school choruses from all over New Zealand, both boys’ choruses and girls’ choruses. While this is an associated barbershop activity, with amazing performances expected and a special show on the Wednesday evening, it is not part of Pan Pac 2020.
Headline Quartet: The Headline Quartet will be “Main Street” who come with a reputation of being great entertainers and we are privileged to have them join us.
Watch out for the first Pan Pac 2020 Newsletter in the near future
