"PERFORMED BY" - typically this is the group that commissioned the arrangement and first performed it. Other key groups that performed the song might also be listed.
"HOW TO PURCHASE SHEET MUSIC" - This is where you would go to purchase the sheet music. Typically either the Barbershop Harmony Society, or "Aaron Dale" - which means you would contact me.
“CONTEST” - The arrangement was created for potential use in barbershop competition. Though created for contest, some could be considered “on the edge” according to current BHS competition guidelines. Some are also much more challenging to perform. You can email me with questions regarding the suitability of an arrangement for contest, or consult someone else in the judging community. Sweet Adeline or Harmony Incorporated singers SHOULD check with someone in their judging community regarding the suitability of my arrangements for their competitions.
“SHOW” – Not a contest arrangement. Arranged for show performance opportunities.
"ARRANGEMENT VOICING" - This is usually M for male, F for female, SATB for Soprano-Alto-Tenor-Bass (also Mixed), or combinations of these as available.
"NUMBER OF PARTS" - exactly that...the number of voice parts written. Sometimes it might have a "range" (5 - 7) if the song has some occasional divided sections that do not last the entire song.
"LEARNING TRACK AVAILABILITY" - If I have learning tracks or someone else does you'll see it listed here.
