Solo Entrant Checklist

  • First things first - check that your music is within the time limit! (see Festival Rule 13)There are good reasons we set time limits: we must start each section on time, and we must be fair to everybody. If you think you are special, well, so do we! In fact we believe that everybody is so special they all deserve the same special treatment

  • Complete and check your music title and composer in STARDOM. (How?) You can change your choice up to one week before the performance day.  Why?

Sketch Plan

Stage Sketch Plan

 

A Stage sketch plan helps the organisers to set out the stage to suit your ensemble or band. Whether you have a large orchestra or just a tiny trio, it helps the MYMF stage crew enormously to have a copy of your stage sketch plan to arrange the stage to suit your needs quickly and efficiently. 

 

Please download the MYMF sketch plan proforma here, fill it out, scan and forward to the Ensembles Registrar as soon as possible to help us plan your Ensembles Day performance.

Why does the Registrar need your music title and composer a week before you perform?

 

The Registrar needs a week to prepare the Festival's

  • 4 - 5 running sheets

  • Blank Adjudicator reports

  • Compere's Script.

 

The blank Adjudicator's Reports are printed out with your name and your music title and composer, and placed in numbered manila folders and then into the section's  document box. The running sheets, also with with your name and your music title and composer are also printed in advance. This all takes considerable time for the volunteer Registrars.

 

So, out of respect for your Registrar, please go to Stardom and update your title and composer no later than a week before you perform.

 

Presenting your music title and composer on the day holds up the Registrar and the other performers waiting to register, as the changes have to be hand-written onto the printed running sheets, adjudicator reports and compere's script. It is far smarter, quicker and easier for you to do this on-line in Stardom beforehand, isn't it? 😊
