Chamber Music Festival details

Parents and Students,

Richardson Chamber Music Festival (RCMF) is this SATURDAY at Berkner HS. Student performance times are listed at: EVERY member of Chamber Orchestra (2nd period) and Philharmonic (4th period) is required to participate. Many members of Concert are involved as well. If there is a problem with your time find someone to switch with and then COME SEE ME and I’ll update the schedule. Use the “Ctrl-F” function if you have multiple events.

Other details for RCMF (pre-performance):

  • Fill out a Judge Comment sheet in class (Mrs. Livings will make sure these get to the contest). This should be done Monday.
  • Have a clean, numbered copy of your music ready for the judge.
  • Dress up in conservative attire. Jeans and shorts are NOT appropriate. Think job interview or church service.
  • Arrive at Berkner HS in time to tune and warm-up; Bring your instrument, music and judge’s music.
  • Find Mrs. Livings if you need help with anything or reply to a “Remind” message and she’ll find you.
  • Check-in at the choir room no later than 20m PRIOR TO your scheduled time.
  • Soloists–Communicate your time to your accompanist and be prepared to go early/late if your accompanist is busy in another room.

Performance Notes:

  • Take time to tune with the piano; ask the judge for assistance if needed.
  • Introduce yourself to your judge and announce your selection. This is polite and will let the judge know that they have the right sheet.
  • Perform
  • Wait for your music to be returned if you’d like it back.
  • Go home and check for the results to be posted online (link coming…)
  • Don’t forget to bring your instrument back to school on Monday.

As always, let me know if you have questions.
