Music in the Park - page 8

Based on acoustics, logistics, and proximity to the
park, the finest available performance facilities have
been acquired. Ensembles will perform in acoustically
acceptable performance areas in local schools, churches,
colleges, and hotels within an acceptable distance from
the park. Performances do not take place in the park.
Warm-Up Description
Warm-up areas are provided in order to tune, line up,
and prepare for your performance. It is not a rehearsal
room. In some instances, the warm-up area may not
have chairs and stands. You may not leave backpacks or
purses in the warm-up room. Instrumental ensembles will
have 25 minutes to warm-up. Choral ensembles will have
20 minutes to warm-up.
Uniform & Changing Room Policy
Uniforms are optional for performances. Please be
certain your students are dressed for performance before
entering the performance facility. Changing facilities are
not available at performance sites. We recommend that
you designate buses for male and female changing of
uniforms or have students wear casual clothes under
their uniform.

times. Please DO NOT take instrument cases into the
warm-up or performance areas. Every case should be
