REGISTRATION & INFORMATION DESKS
The Convention Desk will be located in the City Hall (Eglinton Street entrance) from Friday morning. Anyone arriving on Thursday can pick up their badges/programmes in the Clayton Hotel, Pegasus Suite. We would ask that each chorus appoint one person to collect ID badges / programmes for your chorus/quartet and distribute to your members. No individual badges will be given out from a chorus batch.
Riser Times have been allocated and a list is on the website. Each group is allotted 10 minutes 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. Please convene in the Millennium Hall and move onstage when prompted by the stewards.
WARM UP AND CHANGING FACILITIES
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.
Please note that there is no rehearsal space in the City Hall. You must arrive dressed stage-ready to the City Hall entering by the Eglinton Street entrance and not the front entrance. We ask you not to bring massive amounts of personal effects with you, it’s impossible for backstage volunteers to deal with this. Please follow Stewards’ instructions for storing and collection. It is the responsibility of each quartet and chorus to be at the venue in time at least for your backstage call. Please note any quartet or chorus arriving late may result in losing their allocated slot.
PERFORMERS’ ACCESS TO CITY HALL
You will be directed to the Millenium Hall for holding prior to onstage and will be going on from stage right and exiting by stage left. There are no curtains, performers will file on before being announced.
ENTRANCE TO THE THEATRE DURING COMPETITION AND CONCERTS
As always, competitors will be permitted into the auditorium with your badge between performances. Please follow door stewards’ instructions. Tickets are being sold to the public for all events so please bear this in mind when you’re taking your seats.
