STATE MUSIC FESTIVAL 2019

MAY 3-4, HELENA HIGH SCHOOL

Please see the schedule below for FHS and GHS vocal events.  I have included some instrumental events that use shared accompanists for everyone's convenience.  As of this posting, I have double checked rooms only for FHS vocalists.  There still may have been changes to other rooms.  PLEASE DOUBLE CHECK YOUR ROOM ASSIGNMENT when you arrive at the festival in case there have been changes I missed.

Helena High School will still be holding regular classes during this festival.  Please act respectfully, quietly, and courteously while at the school.  All MHSA behavioral expectations for any activity apply to this festival.

PARKING NOTES 
Please note that for those attending the piano adjudications on Friday, from 8:00 am to 1:00
pm, you may find parking difficult at Helena Middle School due to the Vigilante Parade lining up
on the streets next to the school. Helena Middle School is a short walk west from Helena High.

School District 5 does not provide transportation to State Music Festival.  District policy is that students will ride with their legal guardians if they choose to attend this festival.  If you are riding with an adult other than your legal guardian, please submit a Transportation Release  Form to Mrs. Stephens ASAP.

FOOD SERVICES
There are several fast-food restaurants available within walking or driving distance of Helena
High School. There will be no concession stands available within the adjudication site. No lunch
will be provided for directors on either day.

SCORES

Students are responsible for bringing their original scores for adjudicators.  Please see your director for scores as needed.

I recommend you arrive AT LEAST 1 HOUR BEFORE YOUR EVENT BEGINS.  This gives you time to park, use the restroom, find your event, check the schedule for room changes, and feel calm and organized before you sing.

Good luck to all musicians!
