Students using recorded accompaniments will be responsible for providing appropriate equipment for playing the recording.

Playing directly from a phone without the use of auxiliary speakers is not appropriate.

Do not depend on WIFI availability to stream your accompaniment.

Be cautious when depending on blue tooth; a wired system is more reliable.

Any technical problems may result in stopping your student’s adjudication from continuing.

  • Please share this festival information with other teachers from your district who will be sending students to this festival.
  • If siblings are performing fill out the Solochair form appropriately for the scheduling request of your students
  • If a student is performing in multiple solos/ensembles, make sure that every teacher involved marks the ‘multiple’ column.

PLEASE REMEMBER: A request is a request. It is not a demand, nor a command.

After the schedule is published, teachers will be able to make schedule adjustments for their own students. They will not be able to delete registrants. Only cancel. Canceling only removes the student from the festival. It does not remove them from your invoice.

  • NO REFUNDS for canceled auditions will be given after the festival has closed
  • You may “DELETE” until the scheduling begins
  • You may “CANCEL” at any time
  • “CANCELING” does not remove the fee from your invoice

Do not email the solochair web master about festival-specific questions

PLEASE SHARE THIS INFORMATION WITH THE MUSIC TEACHERS ON YOUR STAFF
