We provide 16 4’x8′ StageRight risers, four deep and four wide, at 12″ height increments, with stairs. Please do not bring risers. Custom stairs and riser configurations can be indicated in your Technical Forms.

We allow special effects and electronic equipment. Please indicate any special equipment in your Technical Forms.

Advanced ensembles must feature live instrumental accompaniment. All other ensembles may be accompanied by a pre-recorded track. We recommend choirs provide their own portable sound system to manage and control their own pre-recorded instrumental tracks. Otherwise, provide your track(s) to the host sound crew the day of your performance.

We provide a drum set, piano keyboard, chairs and music stands. Only the in-house sound system will be used for microphones and general sound control. We will provide five microphones at the front of the stage and a sixth for handheld use. These items may be customized and specified in your Technical Forms.

Each choir is alloted a performance time limit including their load-in, setup, performance, teardown, and load-out. Times vary based on division:

Novice & Intermediate Ensembles: 25 min.
Adv. Bass, Treble, Tier II Mixed: 30 min.
Adv. Tier I Mixed: 35 min.

Penalties are assessed in overal scoring if a choir exceeds their alloted performance time. Coordinate with the host tech crew to ensure a smooth setup.

We encourage a “one student, one choir” policy. Please refrain from featuring students in multiple ensembles, particularly between advanced, intermediate, and novice divisions. Please contact the competition host in advance if you anticipate including multiple students in more than one ensemble you bring (bass choirs excepted).

Only one performing group is allowed backstage/onstage at a time. Do not enter the stage or setup areas if your ensemble is not performing.
