Questions & Answers

1. What time do we arrive and where do we report? Arrive and register between 8:30-9:15am in the Hult Center Lobby, at the registration table.

2. Do we bring a lunch?  YES! A healthy sack lunch and bottled water for each singer and chaperone/director. You’ll want a box to put them all in along the wall in the lobby until needed.

3. Can we eat outside if the weather is nice? Yes!

4. We have the three songs learned. Are there any more? Nope! Other than the song(s) you want to perform for everyone. (Since we are in one hall only this year there is only time for one-two song(s) per group ;-)  If we have more choristers next year we’ll go back to two halls which will give us more performance time.

7. How much time do we have to perform on stage. If you are selected to perform on stage, you have 5 min. to get on stage, perform your song and get off stage. That really leave time for one song. If we have more time, we may optionally offer 7 min. of time, but we would notify all performing choirs if we do that.
