Choir Student List for Concert Program

This year we are including student names in the program. Only their first name and initial of surname will be used. For example, Robyn Filmer will be credited in the program as Robyn F.

What we need you to do is send us a list of your choir students. Your list may (probably will) change – just do the list as best as you can. If your list changes, let us know and we will try to keep the printers up to date. Make sure you have your school name and your name at the top of the list.

We have attached a proforma for you to use if you like.

Thanks everyone who has already sent theirs in.

Choir and Adult Numbers on Concert Day

Choir Numbers

We require your Soprano/Alto split (it should be half). Choir students and Adults on stage will be allocated a seat.

The Production Team is currently allocating seats. We need to know which students have a 1:1 carer.

Adult Numbers

Your final Choir numbers will define how many staff you will need on stage.

  • 1 - 40 Choir students will require 1 teacher on stage (to be either soprano or alto side)
  • Schools with more than 40 Choir students will require 2 staff members (1 on each side).

If the schools with only 1 on stage adult have a preference for which side (where they want to keep an eye out for a particular student), we need to know this.

Schools with more than 10 Choir students, will need 1 extra person to be backstage to help with toilet runs, first aid etc.

Adults attending for travel number ratios (1:10) can help during the day and go into the audience to watch the show.

YOU MUST COMPLETE THE FORM BY FRIDAY 6 AUGUST (end of week 3).
