String and Band events are separate events. Check your member contract to see if you have signed up for each of them. Double fees for adding event are waved this month. Any points received for String events will go towards the String Championship. Any points received for Band entries will go towards the Band Championship. Refer to the Rules Manual for specific details. Piano solos may choose to enter as a Band, String, or Vocal entry. Guitar solos may choose to enter as a Band or String entry. Although Handbells are a Band event, they will perform on the String day with all classifications present.

A FAQ page will be added to the website as questions come in. Most questions can be answered by reading the Rules.
