GENERAL THINGS TO KNOW ABOUT FESTIVAL CHAMBER CLASSES
Regular ensemble classes are competitive. One member of the ensemble may be a pianist. Each ensemble should register once per selection/movement they wish to perform. At the time of registering, each participant’s name will need to be entered and the ensemble’s average age declared. Family ensembles are non-competitive. If a parent is included in the ensemble, that group would register for the family chamber group where parents are included. These chamber classes are typically scheduled during the evening and are for participants who are taking private instruction. If you and your music teacher are unsure about which classes to register for or have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact the coordinator (Heidi - firstname.lastname@example.org) in advance to completing your registration.
CLASS SIZE & AGE DELINEATION BY ENROLMENT
When you register for a class, you will be asked to declare the ensemble’s average age (for the purposes of festival registration, the ensemble’s average age is calculated according to the average age as of December 31st of the year prior to the festival year). After registration closes, the festival schedule’s construction begins. All ensembles will be separated into individual classes according to the following groups: 11 Years and Under / 12-13 Years / 14-15 Years / 16-17 Years / 18-28 Years / Family. Schedule protocol is that no class will exceed eight participants or ninety minutes in length. In situations where there are more than eight participants registered for a class or a class exceeds ninety minutes in length, participants will be separated according to their age group and then sorted randomly into classes of eight or fewer participants.
