Standing Ovation Program
What is it?
The Society’s program to raise performance levels of our Choruses and Quartets. The intent is to point out the good and not-so-good coupled with suggestions for future show improvement.
How does it work?
Choruses or quartets request an evaluation of their public performance and provide tickets to the Review Team.
What does the critique include?
Every phase of the performance: parking and venue, handicapped access, ticketing and front-lobby staff, printed program, lighting, sound, costuming, staging and props, entrance and exits by performers, song selection, flow of program, MC presentation, choreography, vocal production, stage presence, scripting, audience reaction, musicality, guest performers.
Who are the Reviewers?
Experienced Barbershopers with solid music credentials and backgrounds in show production and management. In recent years, at least two Reviewers have attended each SOP event to give broader views of what’s seen and heard. Sunshine Reviewers represent a wide range of talent, including Gold, Silver and Bronze International Medalists, Society Judges, Professional entertainers, Chorus Directors, tenured BBS singers and Chapter Administrators.
Who requests a SOP Review?
Any quartet member or Chorus/Chapter leader.
