REPERTOIRE LIST AND REGISTRATION FORMS
1. We encourage younger performers to be paired with an adult or advanced performer. Parents and teachers are welcome and encouraged to perform with their students at any of the levels, but especially the Elementary/Late Elementary pieces.
2. Be able to perform at the designated/published tempo marks. We will confirm the tempo markings after registration.
3. Implement the printed expression marks
4. Follow a conductor while playing
5. Make necessary changes based on the conductor’s instructions.
It is the teacher's responsibility to see that their performers are fully prepared.
Concert is free to the public
As this is not an adjudicated event, music selections are intended to be accessible and entertaining to encourage more participation. Performers may select one or all of the pieces listed on the repertoire list. In some cases, students may find themselves able or wanting to play in all three divisions. Performers, though, must be able to play at suggested performance tempo.
