What sort of checklist do you go through to make sure all logistics are worked out for a concert? I already have the facility reserved and the date released to students/parents. So…lights, sound, what all needs to be considered?
Colleagues I currently and have previously worked with add some of the following:
-Map out the timing of the entire concert -Incorporate set changes if there are any students that move spots within the ensemble. -Soloist/featured player acknowledgement -Invitations to administrators -Backup concert attire (if concert black or tuxes, have extra socks/ties on hand) -If concert is in a different location than rehearsal space, have an instrument repair go-bag for emergency repairs (Valentino pads if you have a set, valve oil, flathead screwdriver, something to manipulate woodwind springs) -Make sure you have all your scores, maybe even a backup baton (maybe speaking from experience)
There are more but the rest are escaping me at the moment
