Charles Rose Scholarship Fund Guidelines


Priority registration is given and parts are filled as follows:
1. Returning GLHB members
2. Second year guests of GLHB members
3. Members of other Brigades
4. First-time guests of GLHB members

Participation is limited in order to maximize quartetting opportunities for every participant. Your application should be submitted as soon as possible in order to receive the benefit of an early review of your application.

Procedures refined and used at other successful Brigades are in place to determine each applicant's suitability to participate in the GLHB (see acceptance process below). If your application and deposit are accepted and an invitation is issued, learning materials (a part-predominant CD and sheet music) will be sent to you in December. At that time, your deposit becomes non-refundable. If for some reason you are not invited to participate, your initial registration payment will be refunded in full.

Each first time guest must be sponsored by a current member of GLHB. Be prepared to enter the name and email of your member sponsor. Your sponsor must provide additional information for the Review Committee and is also asked to assure that you will be prepared at the rally.

Coming unprepared is not an option. If a guest is not properly prepared, the guest's sponsor will be notified that the guest is disqualified from participating in the quartet contest and may be required to stand down from other Brigade activities. Fees are not refunded in such cases.

Once accepted, you will occasionally receive important pre-rally e-mails. Make sure that you read them in order to be properly prepared. If a response is requested, please reply in a timely fashion.

Acceptance Process:

The Membership Committee reviews each application as quickly as possible; however, a guest should anticipate that it may take up to four weeks to process the application. If a guest's application is approved, a welcome e-mail is sent through the GLHB newsgroup.

Payment Procedures:

The cost for participation in the 2014 Brigade weekend is $220. The fee includes all scheduled meals, a double occupancy room, and music packet with part predominant learning CD. Full Payment at time of Registration is always appreciated by the Treasurer; however, a minimum deposit of $110 plus any extra amounts for shirts, room, CD's or donations is due when your application is submitted. The remaining balance is due two weeks prior to the Brigade weekend. See the FAQ on the Main Page for withdrawal/cancellation policies.

Payment can be made by check or online through the GLHB website. Checks must be made payable to Great Lakes Harmony Brigade and can be mailed to Alan Coombs (GLHB Treasurer), 1701 N. Sheridan Road, Muskegon, MI 49445-1733). Payments sent 2 weeks prior to the event should be done through the web site to be sure payment is received. Any payment at the event however must be by check. No credit cards will be accepted.

No refunds for cancellations will be accepted 72 hours prior to the event due to hotel and caterer cancelation policies. Any registrant who cancels less than 72 hours before the day of the event will be billed for the entire cost.

A Brigade shirt is required for each participant. If you do not have one, you must order and pay for it at the time your application is submitted. You will not be allowed to sing on the show without an official Brigade shirt.
