Due to the timing of the event, however, a pre-commitment is required. Please click the link below to access information and the commitment application. Please hand all three pages to your region contest winners, 1st and 2nd alternates.

Please note that Friday’s ensembles always remain the same each year: small ensembles scheduled between 8:00 and noon, large ensembles between 1:00 and 5:00.
