  • 2. Letter from the PresidentGentlemen –I wanted to take a moment and share with you my thoughts on Central Standard competing atInternational. First off wow, a chorus that was started just a few years ago has arrived on the “big” stage. This isan opportunity for us to introduce ourselves to the barbershop world. It’s an opportunity to show that itdoesn’t matter how many guys you have, 30 guys can produce a huge sound and perform at an “A” level. All ofthat stuff aside it is going to be a great week of brotherhood for us as a chorus but also as with other membersof the society.I hope you are prepared for a great week. Please take some time to enjoy Philadelphia, there are tons ofhistoric landmarks within walking distance of our hotel. Take some time to sing a tag in the hotel lobby andmake new friends. We have worked hard in the past few months and have grown as a chorus, this is ouropportunity to show the greater barbershop community what CS is all about. This is going to be a great weekfor the chapter.Brandon cs 2
  • 3. Directors ThoughtsGentlemen –Well here we are…about to head to Philadelphia as the Central States District champion chorus. Wow! Canyou believe it’s almost time? It’s certainly been a fun ride since Lincoln, hasn’t it?The convention experience will be special for all of us, for many different reasons. It may be your first trip tothe eastern part of the U.S. Or, it may be the thrill of attending your first society international convention. Forsome, it will be the first time you ever compete at international. But for all of us, it will be the first time CentralStandard performs on the international stage. And YOU get to be part of that experience – that history. It’sunlikely that the exact same group of guys will come together for a performance like this one again. And therewon’t be another “first time” like this one for Central Standard. We’ll get to make a bit of history. Howawesome is that?After all the preparations, hard work, planning and sweat that have led up to Philly, our time on stage will comeand then be part of the past. So, savor the international experience together – the trip out, the rehearsals witheach other, the CSD pep rally, meeting other barbershoppers from around the world, taking in the contests, theAIC show, seeing other choruses and quartets, singing tags, making new friends near and far, and most of all,having FUN! Much like Harmony U, the international convention will be one of the highlights of yourbarbershop life. So whether it’s your first international, or one of many, remember, it’s your first time withCentral Standard. cs 3
  • 4. Directors ThoughtsIn addition to your own personal goals for the contest, keep this one in mind – when the curtain opens, YOUhave the power to take people to a different place - to entertain them, to make them laugh, smile, cry, ormaybe put their arm around the one they love. It’s a chance to make a difference in someone’s life for a fewminutes, to take them somewhere else, and maybe even inspire them in a way they didn’t think possible. Thereare few times in life where we get the chance to do that AND wrap it up in the gift of music…pure,unaccompanied, made from nothing but our voices and from the heart. That is one of the greatest gifts youcan share.And after Philly, our ride continues – this contest isn’t our “destination.” It’s just one stop on our journeytogether. I hope you have a wonderful, fantastic convention. It’s been a pleasure to stand out front. I’ll havethe best seat in the house on Friday, July 2, because it will be with each of you.Thank you for the gift you have given me. My wish has already come true.Love you guys –Mike cs 4
