Solo & Duet Release Form
Evaluation Sheet

On the day of the Solo & Duet Competition:

  • Check in before your performance time! You will need to turn in a signed release form (above) and check your performance time. Performances will alternate between divisions. Make sure you report to the announcer/sound table at the designated “READY TIME”. Performers who are late for their performance time will only be rescheduled at the discretion of the Contest Director. Check in will be located in front of Ballroom A.

  • Have your music ready! Performers will be able to do sound checks starting at approximately 4:30pm in the performance venue. MP3 players should have a play-list with a single track. If you are playing music off of your phone, be sure you have it out of the case, have it on airplane mode, and have music downloaded to your phone on a single play-list- your notes app is a great way to store and play music. Do not play music off of the Internet (Pandora, Spotify, YouTube, etc.). We no longer use CDs at contests. Be sure to check that your phone won’t stop playing if it locks. Restarts due to music problems will be solely at the discretion of the Contest Director.

  • Don’t forget about the awards ceremony! This will take place shortly after the final solo performances in the Ballrooms. The top three competitors in each category will receive a medal.

  •  Invite your friends & family to watch! Spectators will be allowed into the performances free of charge. Attendance or participation in the Solo Competition does not grant entry to the Arena for the color guard or percussion Championships performances.
