Gentlemen:Apply NOW for New England Harmony Brigade 2016!
Registration is now open for the 2016 New England Harmony Brigade - and you will miss out on the savings if you apply after Sunday, January 31st!   That's the deadline for getting in on this year's rally at last year's pricing.   We are aware that there is a conflict with the Mid-Atlantic District Convention-Contest this year, but we have a long term contract in place and could not reschedule.  But if you are not attending the M-AD District Convention, you may want to consider NEHB.
It hardly seems possible that this will be our fifth annual rally weekend.  We welcome your application and look forward to singing with you for a not-to-be-forgotten weekend of mix-and-match quartering.  
The rally will be from Friday, September 16 through Sunday, September 18th, 2016, at the Courtyard by Marriott in Marlborough, Mass.   We'll be shipping music in April, so you'll have plenty of time to learn it.  Electronic download of the music will also be available as the fastest way to get your music and learning tracks.  September is a great time to come to the Boston area… if you head north just a few hours, our foliage will be in full bloom.
If you have never attended an NEHB Brigade Rally weekend before, I can only say that you are in for a treat. From the moment you arrive on Friday until you head home on Sunday, you will be ringing chords non-stop on twelve great songs... in the same arrangements that the top medalist quartets sing.  You'll get a chance to sing in dozens of combinations with fully prepared singers because everyone - including you! - commits to coming 100% prepared on words and notes.  You don't need to be a District Champ to enjoy a Brigade, just someone with significant quartetting experience who is ready for a challenge.  Ask anyone who has attended - the payback is awesome!
Our new two-year contract with the hotel comes with an increase in the cost of rooms and food.  To encourage you to sign up quickly, if you apply now - before January 30, 2016 - you will be eligible to attend at the 2015 rate of $298, which includes two nights in the hotel, two dinners, two breakfasts and of course legal music and learning tracks for twelve great songs.   After January 30th, the rally cost will be $316 - which is still a great bargain for all that is included.   As always, if you need financial assistance, please contact me directly.
You'll sing day and night with experienced quartetters who are 100% prepared, you'll participate in a fun and exciting contest, and you'll get a chance to win cheesy awards.  You'll also get to sing on the big Saturday Night Show with a chorus of over one hundred brigade singers, and if you like you can try out any three other guys to sing on the show in a step-out quartet.  Finally, you'll be supporting Music Education at the Algonquin Regional High School, who have been our wonderful hosts and partners for three years in a row.  Their students learn our music, sing on our show and get Master Classes from our headliner quartets.
If this sounds like a lot of fun... well - it is!   Don't delay - apply now to the New England Harmony Brigade at  And tell people you know by forwarding this message, please!

If you know an NEHB member you can ask them to sponsor you.  If you do not know a member and your application is accepted, we'll select one for you.   Your sponsor's job will be to check in with you and give you all the help you need to come fully prepared for a great weekend of singing.
The New England Harmony Brigade is one of nine Brigades around the country, all of which are full subsidiaries of the Barbershop Harmony Society.  Your NEHB leadership team works hard year-round to give you the quartetting experience of a lifetime.  Apply now and enjoy a weekend of singing like no other!
Yours in Harmony,
