For details on the guidelines and safety measures in place for the convention, please see the Safety Protocols page.
To be On Broadway!... you’ve got to hustle, and it takes a lot of folks behind the scenes! You know that! Yes, we’re asking for your help!
Please set aside time to assist with the Hospitality Room, Education Classes, door monitoring of our contests or backstage assistance during contests. Sign up by entering your information on the SignUp Genius poll.
If you have questions or prefer to sign up directly by email, contact our Volunteer Coordinator, Joanne O'Connor at email@example.com. Your help will be very much appreciated.
Remember, the backstage crew is just as much a part of a successful performance as those on the stage!

Welcome to On Broadway!, our celebration of song and the resiliency and power of performance right here at AC&C 2023, hosted by New England Voices in Harmony (NEVIH). From the old standards to newer shows, the music of Broadway is a part of the fabric of our musical lives. As we experience the joy of singing together, we honor those who make their living making music come alive, while we celebrate each other’s gift to do the same. NEVIH welcomes you to On Broadway!!!
Be sure to stop by the Hospitality Room to pick up your All-Events Pass. There you will also find the popular basket raffle to benefit our Youth Outreach programs, interesting items for sale, a place to relax with a revitalizing chair massage or just room to gather and chat with fellow performers. The Hospitality Room will be open on Thursday and Friday (not Saturday).
If you would like to sell any of your quartet or chorus CD’s in the Hospitality Room, please contact the Hostess Chapter Chairs, Lynn Arner or Rita Ralston at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information and to make arrangements.
The hotel will be making a lunch concession available on Friday and Saturday, near the Hospitality Room from 11:15 a.m. to 1:15 p.m. A variety of sandwiches and snacks will be available for purchase. Details to be added here later.
Sounds like fun, right? NEVIH looks forward to greeting you and helping the Area 2 Convention Team make your AC&C experience as enjoyable as possible. You will recognize NEVIH members by their black T-shirts with a Broadway Show Playbill depicted.
Yes, it’s that time again to plan what your basket will be like for the Raffle. Chapters, quartets and individuals have been very generous in past years in supporting the raffle where the full proceeds are used to fund events for our youth.
Area 2 will again partner with the Barbershop Harmony Society and Sweet Adelines to support the Harmony Explosion Camp Northeast 2023, along with other Chapter Youth Initiatives and Youth Scholarships during the coming year. Proceeds from the Basket Raffle will support these efforts. We invite chapters and quartets to plan a creative basket to provide for these causes.
The theme for this year, On Broadway! can be interpreted as creatively as you wish for your basket themes. Once you’ve decided on your basket, or have any questions, please contact our Raffle Basket Coordinator Diane Reynolds, at email@example.com. Thanks for your support!
