VOCAL SOLOS v. VOCAL ENSEMBLES?
• Vocal solos are considered a different entry than a vocal ensemble
• We compare the number of vocal solos and vocal ensembles for each voice part and then select the chorus based on those percentages (as close as we can given duplicates within the vocal ensembles and tied ratings)
• Thus there is a different cut-off for each type within the same voice part.
• You should have received the president's letter in the mail that formalizing your student participation and invites those accepted students to consider being a part of the Concert Festival

• You are reminded to review the Concert Fesitival policies available through the Documents link at the top to make sure you are fully aware of everyone's responsibilities
