We will include two copies (per group) of the performance/selection/Soloist form for you to fill out. Please bring both copies with you when you come to the festival. We depend on you to provide accurate information on these forms so we can award outstanding soloist certificates, release accurate information to the media, ensure accurate stage set up, and to publish a bibliography of all music performed at the festival.
Approximately thirty minutes prior to your assigned performance time, report to the registration desk. Someone will then take you and your group to your warm up room. This system helps us keep hallways clear and helps insure each group gets their full twenty minute warm up time.
We will have the following equipment available for your use at each site:
• Vocal Ensembles Piano, electric bass amp, drum set, risers, PA system, up to 16 microphones, and a sound technician.
• Instrumental Ensembles Piano, electric bass and guitar amps, drum set, music stands and chairs, risers, vibes, bass amp, conga drums, timbales, and sound technician.
• Our sound technician will place microphones as you indicate on the stage set up form.
We do not provide mallets, sticks, or any other equipment.
We do NOT provide storage for cases or coats. You may either bring those items with you as you move through the rotation, or leave them on the bus while you perform.
The basic stage set up will be in place before you arrive. If you have special needs, you are responsible for those changes.
Each group will be allotted thirty minutes of stage time. This time MUST include set up, tear down, performance and adjudicator clinic. We recommend that you limit your performance to no more than twenty minutes to allow the adjudicators time to work with your ensemble.
Each group will receive a 30 minute clinic offstage with one of the adjudicators.
