Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Why Is the registration deposit due more than a year before the festival?

A: The hotel and performance venues each require a non-refundable deposit from us a full year before the event. This is necessary for us to reserve those arrangements before someone else does. The registration deposit for each participant is calculated to cover the deposits required for rehearsal space, performance venues, hotel, and ground transportation.

Q: Will my registration deposit be applied to the cost of the festival?

A: Yes it will.

Q: Are my payments safe?

A: Here is the audition process:

  • We will provide digital audio accompaniment for 2 passages from the festival repertoire.

  • Auditionees will record themselves singing the passage using their cell phone or other digital recording device and then email their recordings to an address we will provide.

  • The recorded auditions will be reviewed by a panel of experienced choral conductors and voice teachers.
