Seniors Quartet Qualifications
by Gary Plaag

In the last Mid'l Antics (2017 vol 1), I explained the history of, and new guidelines for, determining our MAD representative to the international senior quartet contest held at BHS Mid-Winter Convention each January. One thing that needed a bit more clarification is the number of senior quartets that would be included in the fall district quartet contest on Friday night. My explanation says that three (3) senior quartets will advance to the fall district quartet contest.

That should have read that AT LEAST three (3) senior quartets will advance to the fall district quartet contest. It's possible, as has happened this year, that some, of the senior quartet competitors from the spring prelims and division quartet contests will also qualify for the non-senior district quartet contest. When this happens, then ALL of the senior quartets that also qualified as non-senior quartets for the fall district quartet contest will be added into the senior competition. If, for example, only one senior quartet also qualifies as a non-senior quartet, then we will add two more senior quartets to the fall district quartet contest (above the normal 25 competitors) and those two quartets will only compete as senior quartets.

Bottom line: we will invite AT LEAST three (3) senior quartets to participate in the international senior quartet preliminary contest at our MAD fall district quartet contest. Any senior quartets that also qualify for the fall district quartet contest as non-senior quartets will be invited to compete in both the senior quartet and non-senior quartet competitions. Hope that makes things clearer. Please let me know if you have any questions or need further clarification.

Youth In Harmony Outreach Guidelines

Back-to-school is just around the corner within the M-AD (and has already occurred in some jurisdictions), and many of our chapters, quartets and choruses are eager to engage music educators to get involved in a barbershop outreach program at their local schools. This is a good thing! That said, it's critical to the success of our outreach efforts that we always leave the music educator with the best possible impression of the barbershop art form and how it can enhance/augment the teacher's music education program.

The MAD Marketing Team has created a Marketing Toolbox for Chapters & Quartets to use to promote your group.



MAD Chorus Plateau Definitions

Chorus plateau categories are based on the average percentile results
from the two previous contests in which the chorus was entered.

AAAA70% and above
AAA60 - 69.9%
AA55 - 59.9%
A54.9% and below.

First-time competitors will not be eligible for plateau awards,
but their initial contest score can be used to place them in their next contest.
A chorus that has not competed in any contest for more than four years
will reenter the contest cycle as a Plateau A chorus.
