1 Early Music Festival Information Packet Wednesday, Nov. 2, 2016

2 Questions & Answers What are School Days at the Texas Renaissance Festival? School Days is a two day event when the Texas Renaissance Festival opens its gates exclusively to school groups grades K-12. The 55-acre New Market Village, an authentic recreation of a 16th century township, comes alive with interactive characters, live demonstrations, performers and stage shows appropriate for school age children. This year, School Days will be held on Tuesday and Wednesday, November 1st and 2nd, with the Early Music Festival held on Wednesday, November 2nd. What is the Early Music Festival at School Days? Our Early Music Festival is an adjudicated competition which offers students from all grade levels the chance to perform works of classical music in an authentic Renaissance setting. Students may compete in the general categories of instrumental and vocal performance, with sub categories based on the size and type of the ensemble. All performances will be adjudicated by experienced and credentialed music professionals. Last year over 100 music groups from all over Texas and Louisiana participated in the festival. How Much Does It Cost to Enter the Early Music Festival? There is no fee to register your students for the competition. The only purchase necessary is your admission to School Days. Admission tickets are $9 for students, teachers and chaperones. Bus drivers are admitted free by showing their CDL at the gate. How Do I Warm-Up before Performing in the Early Music Festival? Based on feedback, to simplify your day, as well as allow us to utilize our spaces more effectively, we are combining the warm up and performance time on stage. You will take the stage at your appointed time, then you have 15 minutes to use however you like. Warm up as much or as little as you feel you need. You may also take your group to any place on site that is not occupied and do a separate warm up, just please be aware of disturbing groups that might be performing nearby. What are the specifics on Time Limits and Music Selections? All groups are allowed up to 15 minutes in front of the judge. Entries are limited to 3 selections of music. Groups are allowed to enter with less pieces if they so choose. Any time used on the stage to adjust, tune, or warm up will be deducted from the overall 15 minute time limit to ensure the contest keeps moving. Musical selections should reflect the theme of the festival. (i.e. Medieval, Renaissance, or Baroque eras or music that are similar in style and theme). In the madrigal competition, pieces must be authentic madrigals. Adding Solo/Ensemble for Choral Students We are adding solo/ensemble for choral students. Please use UIL guidelines and song selection. In this one event, songs do not have to be Renaissance, they simply need to be on the UIL list. We will not have a live accompanist. We will have a sound system, students may bring CD or mp3 accompaniment. Though solos and ensembles and jr high and high school will all be sharing the stage, they will be judged separately: Jr. High solo, Jr. High ensemble, HS solo, HS ensemble. Limit is two registrations per event per school. IMPORTANT: YOU MUST KNOW THE NAME(S) OF THE STUDENTS BEFORE YOU CAN REGISTER THEM. We don t need pieces, but we do need names. We don t have the staffing to try to hunt down names in October and November.

3 What is Provided for Use? One conductor s music stand will be provided at each venue. For bands and large orchestras, there will be 60 chairs and 40 stands. For small orchestras, there will be 25 chairs and 15 stands. We apologize but we do not have space for instrument storage throughout the day. Pianos/keyboards will not be provided. Groups are welcome to bring instrumental accompaniment (no vocal tracks) and a portable battery operated stereo. Please note that not all performance spaces are equipped with power. Are There Any Type of Awards Given at the Early Music Festival? Yes. At the end of the day a special Royal Awards Ceremony will be held at which the top scoring ensembles in each age group and category will receive awards. Youth and Middle School Awards are held at 3:30 at the Odeon Stage. High School awards are held at 3:30 at the Globe Stage. Winners who are not present for the ceremony will receive their awards in the mail. The highest award winning groups may also be invited to return and perform their shows during one of our regular Texas Renaissance Festival weekends. Who is Allowed to Enter the Early Music Festival? There is a wide variety of categories open to all ages and grade levels. Registration is open to all Public, Private, and Home School groups who wish to perform. How Do I Register for the Early Music Festival? The deadline to be scheduled for all events is Friday, October 7, All entries received after this date will be admitted as on a first come, first serve basis in any remaining time slots. Performance schedules will not be made until after this date. School Days opens at 8:30 and first entries into the competition start soon after. The last group will perform prior to 3:30 Awards Ceremony. If you have known conflicts on performance times due to travel, please declare it on the registration forms. Registration is available online at What if I need to make changes to our registration? Please notify the festival office of changes to your entries up until 5:00 p.m. Friday, October 28. At that time, no more changes will be entered. You may, if needed, notify your stage manager or adjudicator if a change has been made that TRF didn t update properly on the adjudication form.
