PERFORMANCE:

We work extremely hard to keep things running on time. We have a supportive back stage crew, led by our Technical Director, Ryan Shapiro.  This crew will provide you with a smooth set-up and answer any questions that you may have and assistance along the way. There has been new space added for set and prop storage as well as band equipment. 

SOLO COMPETITION:

Each school may enter up to four soloists per day at $20.00 each.  Soloists will be judged and critiqued, the top 3 soloist form each day will perform in the evening for over 1000 spectators. The winner from each day will be announced during the final awards. 

HOMEROOMS:

Our host choir members will personalize and decorate classrooms for each choir to house their belongings, use as a changing/hair/make-up room with a live feed from stage projected in each room.  We will have parents and student hosts monitoring the rooms throughout the weekend to ensure the safety of your belongings.
