Special Deal: Bring your senior adult choir to the 2015 festival for free

  • Bring your choir of 7 or more singers and pay the full registration fee of $250/$300
  • Recruit one or more senior adult choirs of 7 or more that have not attended in the last three years
  • After the festival is completed, you will receive a rebate check amounting to $100 for the first choir you recruited and $50 for each additional choir, not to exceed your entire registration fee.

What you need to do:

  • Register your church choir for the festival and pay the appropriate fees 
  • Recruit additional senior adult choir(s)
  • Notify Sherry Thompson of the choir(s) you have recruited
  • Those choirs will register with us and pay their fees

Please note that if this offer is more successful than we expect, we may have to limit the offer once we reach a certain threshold; we will update this page and notify choir directors who have attended in the past if that happens. Also, please be aware that there can be only one rebate paid out per recruited choir (two churches cannot claim the same recruited choir.)

Our hope is that this will be a great incentive for you to recruit new choirs, helping your music budget along the way. We feel that the new choirs will have a great experience and will desire to participate in subsequent years.


  • $250 per BSCNC affiliated church, with choir of 7 or more people
  • $300 per non-affiliated group
  • $40 each individual with choir of 6 or less
