Tips for Your Day(s) at the
Las Vegas Jazz Invitational Festival
Double-Check your performance time(s)
Prepare for your performance - Allow
enough time for set-up, tear-down, and applause so that the total time on stage
does not exceed 30 minutes. Scores are not necessary. We will be
offering comments from the clinicians.
Encourage your students to attend the Educational Clinics and Concerts- We
take great pride in the quality and diversity of our clinicians and feel that
the clinics and concerts are an important aspect of the educational component
of the festival.
Help us keep things moving smoothly and safely - Please follow the
route your guide will set from the warm-up room to the performance site, then
to the clinic room (if applicable).
Keep in mind what equipment is provided - There will be 25
music stands in each performance venue.
Each performance site will have a piano; drum set/cymbals; vibes; bass and guitar amps,
and congas. Keyboards will not be provided. To help keep things
running smoothly, we ask that you use the equipment provided. Drummers
may use their own cymbals.
Remember that volunteers are here to help you -Please
let us help you with any special needs you have. Also, the sound
engineers are there to help ensure a wonderful performance. If you need
something from them, please let them know before or during your performance.
