A CAPPELLA CHOIR
Students are required to remain in the building at all times during the festival. On Thursday, students will keep their items and personal belongings in the back half of the auditorium. On Saturday, there will be a homeroom assigned to each district.
RCSMA and the host school assume no responsibility for lost items; please make sure students store their personal items securely, and only bring with them what they need for the rehearsal and performance.
All seats in the auditorium are reserved for patrons. Due to the demand for seating, students may not come to the auditorium following their performance. Students will return to their school’s classroom after the performance time.
