Important Notes on Lodging

  • If reserving over the phone, tell the staff you are with NW ACDA HONOR CHOIRS. If you fail to inform them that you are with the honor choirs, you will not receive a discounted rate, you will not be listed on the housing roster, and could be removed from the honor choir.

  • The designated chaperone must either (1) stay in the hotel room with the singer, or (2) follow the school, district, or organization policy regarding overnight trips. If your singer’s chaperone is not a school employee, school or district overnight trip policies may not apply.

MUSIC

On December 10, 2021, your music packet will be mailed to your choir director to pass out to you.

All honor choir singers must follow these expectations:

  • All music MUST be learned by the first rehearsal on March 9, 2021.

  • You MUST bring your sheet music to Spokane. 

  • Be prepared to sing the concert memorized.

  • You will receive practice tracks for all of your music. Use these practice tracks to learn your music outside of the school day. Do not expect your choir director to teach you your honor choir music.

  • Plan time to practice every day.

  • You only get ONE copy of your music. Do not lose it. If you misplace your music, you must be prepared to pay to replace it.

MEALS

All singers are responsible for their own meals. Meals are not included in your registration fee.

CHAPERONES

Parent chaperones are a vital part of the success of these honor choirs. Each student needs a chaperone, but one chaperone may serve more than one singer. 

  • Chaperones are responsible for singers at all times, except when singers are in rehearsal. 

  • Chaperones are not required to pay a fee.

  • Chaperones will not be granted access to any NW ACDA events without purchasing separate registration or concert tickets.

  • Chaperones will not receive breakfast provided at the College Fair.

VACCINATION/TESTING REQUIREMENTS

The Martin Woldson Theater at the Fox will require proof of vaccination or proof of a negative COVID-19 PCR test to enter the venue. Because this location serves as the Honor Choir Concert venue, all honor choir participants, staff, conductors, and concert attendees are expected to abide by the following:

  • All honor choir participants and staff (e.g. conductors, accompanists, coordinators, guest instrumentalists) must provide proof of vaccination OR must provide proof of a negative COVID-19 PCR test taken within 72 hours prior to attending the conference.

  • You will need to present your proof of vaccination or negative PCR test results upon check-in at the conference in order to receive your badge. Your information will not be collected or stored by the conference.

  • Any one following forms of proof are acceptable:

    • Physical vaccination card

    • Printed PCR test results

    • Picture of your vaccination card

    • Picture of your PCR test results

    • Digital vaccination record

    • Digital PCR test results

  • Attendees who are ineligible for the vaccine must provide proof of a negative COVID-19 PCR test taken within 72 hours prior to entering the theatre.

  • "Fully vaccinated" means you have had your second vaccine dose at least 14 days prior to the conference start.

  • Masks will continue to be required per current CDC guidance that all people, vaccinated or unvaccinated, wear masks while in public spaces.

  • If you are a chaperone and would like to observe choir rehearsals, you must (1) be prepared to show proof of vaccination OR negative PCR test, and (2) wear a well-fitting mask while in the rehearsal space.

  • All honor choir participants will be required to wear a well-fitting face covering for rehearsals and performance, per the CDC guidance that all people, vaccinated or unvaccinated, wear masks while in public spaces. Participants will provide their own masks, and coordinators will ensure proper mask-wearing during rehearsals and performance.

Conference leaders will continue to monitor the situation closely, follow all protocols and guidance from (1) the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, (2) the Washington State Department of Health, and (3) the Spokane Regional Health District, and will provide additional updates as necessary.
