Parents

Whether you have reached this page because your child’s teacher is bringing a group of singers, or you are sending your child independently, we are excited you found us! To register your child, please complete the singer registration form, which includes information about allergies, T-shirt size, and emergency contact information. You may even pay the registration fee online via the registration link. Providing a reliable email address will ensure you receive updated communication about the festival and festival preparations.

 

Teachers

Teachers invite students from your schools to attend and benefit from this incredible opportunity. The festival will be no extra work for you, as we have streamlined the registration process, and made rehearsal tracks for the middle school choir. The elementary choir will learn all of their music on the day of the event. Please let us know which of your students you are inviting by completing a roster form which includes name, age/grade, and voice part for each student. We will use this form to help you track who of your students has and has not registered for the event. Parents will do the actual registration of their child. You will distribute a link to the parents who will then provide additional information as well as make payment. A printable invite, which includes the link is also available to send home with students. Please contact the office if your school intends to pay your students’ registration, or for any other questions.

 

Teacher Workshop

All teachers are invited! The workshop is open to anyone looking to refine their skills as a conductor or educator and is particularly appropriate for music education students. In addition to working with Andrea Ramsey, you will have the opportunity to work with the New World Singers who act as the demonstration choir as well as network with other music educators. Simply fill out this festival registration form and put NA in any field that does not apply. You do not need to be sending singers to the festival to participate in the workshop.
