REGISTRATION BADGES AND LANYARDS
The Registration Desk will be located in the INEC at the Ticket Desk. Anyone arriving on Thursday can pick up their badges. We would ask that each chorus appoint one person to collect ID badges and lanyards for your chorus/quartet and distribute to your members. Where possible no individual badges will be given out from a chorus batch.
Again this year we are making the Programme available from this website to download and to print yourself before setting off for Killarney. This is an endeavour to reduce the need for paper production. We will also have a mobile-friendly version which you can access on your phone over the weekend but not during performances.
STAGE TEST TIMES
Each group has been allocated a 5 minute stage test time and a list is on the website to check on and off stage and sound. If you are not available for the appointed time, we will continue to fill the slots with the next appointed group.
You are advised to book your own rehearsal room preferably in the hotel where the majority of your chorus is staying. This is not the responsibility of the Convention organisers.
You must arrive dressed stage-ready to the INEC Auditorium. We ask you not to bring massive amounts of personal effects with you, as there is nowhere to hold them. Please follow Stewards’ instructions for collection. It is the responsibility of each quartet and chorus to be at the INEC Lobby 15 minutes prior to your stage time. This is the area just outside the main auditorium. Please note any quartet or chorus arriving late may result in losing their allocated slot.
PERFORMERS’ ACCESS TO AUDITORIUM
You will be directed to the STAGE LEFT SIDE for holding prior to onstage and will be going on from stage left and exiting by stage right and out the side of the auditorium. There are no curtains, performers will file on before being announced.
COMPETITIONS TIMES FRIDAY AND SATURDAY
ENTRANCE TO THE AUDITORIUM DURING COMPETITION AND CONCERTS
As always, competitors will be permitted into the auditorium ONLY with your ID badge between performances. Please follow door stewards’ instructions.
