NQC considers move to Summer
Yesterday, the National Quartet Convention sent out an email to those on their mailing list. The first two questions asked if they had attended the convention within the last 5 and the last 10 years. The final three questions, however, were the heart of the survey, and are of particular interest. They asked if fans would be more likely or less likely to attend if the convention was held in late June, mid-July, or kept at the week following Labor Day.
Because of traveling related to my job, I indicated that my current personal preference is to keep it where it is. (Also, I don’t personally have a great tolerance for heat, and the thought of adding 90 degree temperatures to 16-hour days is not particularly pleasant!)
That said, moving NQC to June or July could definitely play a role in freeing up a younger audience to be able to attend.
