The Linn-Mar Show Choir Invitational
Linn-Mar High School will provide:
- In the performance area, we will supply 4’ x 8’ Stageright platforms at 8”, 16”, 24”, and 32” (4 at each level). You may add platforms to suit your needs. The platforms will be set back 10’ from the mic line. Our platforms may not be moved.
- A video of your group will be provided at no extra charge.
- Cafeteria: Food will be available for purchase by our choir parents during the entire invitational. Breakfast will be available.
- Food is NOT allowed to be brought into our school during our invitational. Food is NOT allowed to be consumed in homerooms at any time. Food must be consumed in the food sales area.
- Five cordless microphones will be in the performance area.
In order to better assure that your soloists mics will be ready, we are requiring that each group have a person at the sound board to identify where each solo is located and when the soloist will perform.
One of your hosts will help direct your sound person to the sound booth.
- A piano will be in the warm-up auditorium.
- Director/Chaperone/Bus Driver hospitality room. This room will be open all day with food, quiet, and privacy. Great food and hopitality! Be sure to check it out!
- Homerooms. These can be used for storage, pre-warm up (no piano supplied), dressing and relaxing. Hall monitors will be available to lock your homeroom during your performance sequence. At all other times, YOU MUST provide your own chaperones to supervise your homeroom. Upon departure, please help by cleaning your space. Our hosts will be available with trash bags. Reminder: NO FOOD in the homerooms.
- Additional Storage. Groups will be able to store large set pieces and anything they don’t want to haul down a set of stairs behind our gym stage. We highly suggest this rather than slowing the day down by using our ancient elevator.
- One program per family will be available at no charge with paid admission.
- Workshop immediately following your performance. In this session, the critique judge will work with each group on their concerns about the show. The critique is not open to the public.
- Music stands, 2 Amps, and a drum set with no cymbals in warm-up areas. This is to avoid you having to cart your personal drum set and amps up and down stairs.
- Music Stands and Chairs in performance area.
- Each performing group will be given wrist bands to distribute to chaperones for free admission. We will give you 1 wrist band for every 15 students in your group. (Hand stamping may be done instead of wristbands).
- There will be an awards ceremony following the Daytime Competition on Saturday afternoon. There will also be an awards ceremony following the Finals Competition on Saturday night. Both of these ceremonies will be held in the High School Gymnasium.
- Please have student representatives of your group in costume and available to receive awards at the awards ceremonies that apply to your group.
