3. Implement the printed expression marks

5. Make necessary changes based on the conductor’s instructions.

6. It is recommended that participants be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 and wear masks while rehearsing and performing.

 

It is the teacher's responsibility to see that their students are fully prepared.

As this is not an adjudicated event, music selections are intended to be accessible and entertaining to encourage more participation. Students may select one or all of the pieces listed in their division! In some cases, students may find themselves able or wanting to play in other divisions. Students, though, must be able to play at suggested performance tempo.
