Let's Sing Participation Guidelines

Let's Sing Participation Guidelines

REGISTRATION

Teachers enrol via the registration form on the CaSPA website to indicate participation and number of students attending.

2018 Let's Sing is a NESA approved course. Teachers who wish to attain accreditation for participation in this event must register separately via PHRIS/ELM. Course code: 2000-4843

PREPARED REPERTOIRE

Once registered, each school will be given instructions on how to access the “Let’s SING” repertoire online via CaSPA Resources. This resource includes the vocal scores and matching audio guides for the two contrasting works to be learnt for the Masterclass and the “all-in” performance showcase.  

Depending on your ensemble’s level of experience, certain vocal parts may be suggested for each piece. To ensure that we make the best use of time during the Masterclass session, we ask that schools be adequately prepared for the event.

INDIVIDUAL SCHOOL PERFORMANCE

The introductory part of the day will feature a performance from each school’s vocal group of one song of your choice that you would like to share with the rest of the participants.

Your performance accompaniment can be either via backing track or played live using the in-house grand piano. If using a track as accompaniment we would require this no later than Friday 27 July. Performance duration should not exceed 3.5min to allow time for every ensemble to perform during the first session.  

It is preferable that the number of students per school does not exceed 25 to allow as many schools as possible to participate. As we will work in parts, the age range for this repertoire is most suited to students in Years 5 and 6.

The performance running order will be determined on the day.

ARRIVAL

Access to the venue is via the Neich Parade entrance only.

‘Let’s SING’ will commence promptly at 9:30am so we ask that all schools make the necessary travel arrangements to be present at the venue by 9:00am.

DRESS

Students should come attired in either school uniform or school sports uniform.

FOOD/DRINKS

Students should bring sufficient food and water for the day, as they will not have access to the SCCVC Canteen. Supervising staff will be able to order their lunch from the school canteen prior to 9:30am. Food can only be consumed during the breaks in the courtyard outside the SCCVC Theatre. 

TOILETS 

Students will have access to the SCCVC toilets in the main courtyard. Students who need to leave the theatre at any time are asked to do so in pairs.

DUTY OF CARE

Schools must provide adequate teacher supervision for the number of students participating.  Supervising teachers must also have immediate access to student emergency contact details on the day and any emergency response plans for acute medical conditions.
