The next Western Division conference will be held February 20-22, 2014, in sunny Santa Barbara, California!
Traditional choral performances will take place in the fabulous acoustics of the Granada Theatre, which recently experienced a monumental, $50 million restoration and renovation and is now one of America's finest concert halls. Both acoustically and aesthetically, the Granada is simply breathtaking. Interest sessions will take place in our gorgeous beachfront headquarters hotel, The Fess Parker Double Tree, which will also house exhibits.
New for the 2014 Conference in Santa Barbara will be informal concert appearance in numerous Showcase Performance slots. The standards for these performances will be consistent with Granada Theater performances. Showcase Performance times will be part of the conference program and will be scheduled in The Fess Parker Hotel, close to the exhibits, where large audiences may hear them. The Fess Parker venue has lively acoustics and features high ceilings. The purpose of these performances is to provide more opportunities for many excellent choirs in the division to appear and be recognized. The conference will be a constant flow of quality performances and events.
Registration costs: Active/Life $175.00, Retired $125.00, Student $65.00
