    4. Rehearsals are not staffed, so please be prepared to take care of all set up, and return the auditorium to proper set up after your rehearsal.

Two Weeks Before the Concert

  • You may post a maximum of 10 posters announcing your concert no sooner than 2 weeks before the concert. Posters cannot be placed on glass or in classrooms, elevator, restrooms or offices (they will be removed). They may only be posted on bulletin boards and lockers. Please remove them immediately afterward.
    • If you have not already done so, email the completed template to Michelle Taylor at mjtaylor@syr.edu. Make sure this is approved by your teacher!
  • The office will proofread, make copies, and will deliver your program to your concert.
  • The office does not arrange for program notes, translations or inserts. These are entirely your responsibility.
  • If you miss the program deadline, it is your responsibility to produce the program on your own. We will NOT send out reminders. If you do not turn items in on time, we CANNOT process them.

Receptions

Please be considerate of other performers that day. All trash must be removed to outside dumpsters, and the room must be returned to classroom set up. NO items can be placed on pianos.
