Well, as the saying goes, I have good news and bad news. First the bad news: Your NEHB Board has been trying very hard to figure out how to keep everybody safe from COVID-19 this September! After a lot of back-and-forth, we have decided to postpone this year’s NEHB Rally to September 17th–19th, 2021. We will be using the same music we intended for 2020.
This was not an easy decision! When BHS and other national choral organizations deliberated on What Science and Data Say About the Near-Term Future of Singing, we listened. We got feedback from other Brigades. We considered holding the Rally in late 2020 or early 2021, but for your safety the best option was to push it forward to our assigned weekend next September.
Now for the good news!
Those who have already been accepted to participate in NEHB 2020 are good to go for 2021. Music has been distributed and there is plenty of time to learn it. If you haven’t registered for NEHB yet, please do sign up as NEHB 2021 registration is now open!! Sign up now and get your music right away before we’re sold out… and we have reason to believe that we will be sold out! (Besides, when was the last time you could sign up for a Harmony Brigade, and have a year and a half to prepare? Enjoy it while you can!)
More Good News – Midtown has agreed to be our guest quartet for the 2021 Rally!! All the excitement we felt about having them this year will carry right over to September 17th- 19th, 2021.
As we’ve discussed before, we are committed to singing this music together! I regret that we won’t get to sing together in September 2020. So, let’s sing our songs together in September 2021 -- and the long wait will only make the chords sweeter.
We will continue to stay in touch with you as details of the 2021 Rally develop further. Be well and be safe and keep singing!!!
Yours for a song, Daniel Schwartz President, NEHB 2017-2020
