I just wanted to say THANK YOU for an awesome weekend! This is my 3rd time with HOA and I continue to be more impressed every time. You run a class act with a staff that is just the BEST!by Carla Doles, dir. Norwell, IN
This was simply one of the best experiences I have had in a long time. My kids loved it and so did my administration and parents! We are already planning on coming to Nashville next year so put us down and save us a spot! Thank you!by Danielle Frerer, dir, Tupelo, MS
This was truly a top notch experience from beginning to end. The hotel was fantastic, the competition field was great and very diverse; I loved that my students had the freedom to compete, watch groups, shop, dine, and even ice-skate all under one roof. The passion and professionalism has led me to believe that Heart of America will be a big success with a multitude of groups going forward. The adjudication panel was superb, my students and I have nothing but great things to say about the attention to detail, organization, and our overall experienceby Larry Downey, dir. Jenks, OK
No doubt producing major national level choir competitions is no small feat! We couldn’t do it without the support of our sponsors: Dance Sophisticates, Gail McInnis Productions, Dianne Holbert Ltd and Music Travel Consultants. Though the students receive much of the applause, we are giving a standing ovation to each of these businesses! Bravo!
