FLORIDA FEDERATION OF MUSIC CLUBS

JUNIOR CONVENTION 2017
UNIVERSITY OF NORTH FLORIDA
JACKSONVILLE, FLORIDA
MAY 5-6, 2017

Dear Festival Counselors and Teachers,

2017 convention schedules have been mailed. Please review your schedule carefully. If there are any errors or discrepancies, contact Lisa Smith immediately at (904) 886-4188 or at lisa.ffmc.jrconvention@outlook.com. If any of your students need to withdraw, please send their names and events to Lisa Smith.

In the auditions schedule, audition rooms are designated A, B, C, etc. At the Junior Convention there will be signs indicating in which rooms the A, B, C etc. auditions will be held. With the exception of events for which individual times have been assigned, Juniors must sign up at the audition room for a playing position at least fifteen minutes prior to their audition. With the exception of rooms A and B, sign-up sheets will be available near the entrance to the audition room. NO warm-up rooms will be available due to the problems caused by some parents and students towards UNF personnel monitoring in 2016. We are very disappointed for students who work so diligently, but we had no choice.

REGISTRATION WILL BE IN THE FINE ARTS BUILDING (Building 45). All students must register prior to auditioning. Each student will receive a convention schedule and convention booklet. Teachers, please send your students with the following information: event, class, audition room assignment, and time of audition. Teachers: pick up certificates for your students when registering. Certificates will NOT be given to Juniors.

A concert featuring the 2016 Scholarship Recipients and presentation of special awards will be held at 7:30 P.M. in Lazzara Theatre on both Friday and Saturday evenings. Teachers, encourage your students to all attend the Awards Assembly and Performances. Inspiration from this event may be instrumental in goals for 2016-2017. There aren't many opportunities for them to be in a huge arena where music is supreme!! Following the concert, audition winners will be announced. If you cannot be present, please appoint someone to pick-up your students’ trophies or ribbons. If awards have to be mailed, a shipping and handling fee of $15.00 and $5/ribbon will be required. Friday’s results will be posted on-site on Saturday; all results will be posted on the FFMC website approximately two days after the convention has completed. Please do not call or e-mail Lisa Smith for this information.

Please remind your students that the audio or video recording is NOT allowed during the audition! Also be aware that any Junior (or accompanist) who uses photocopied music will be disqualified (unless the copied score is accompanied by written permission from the publisher). Teachers, parents, and entrants are prohibited from conferring with the judges. Doing so can result in disqualification.

Reminder: FFMC requires each Festival Area having entries in the State Junior Convention to provide a full day (minimum of half day for each worker) of monitoring for each day of the competition. If not, the festival area will make arrangement, including funding, to hire an individual to cover that responsibility. Names with contact information are to be provided at least 14 days prior to the start of the convention to the Monitor Chairmen. This is to ensure that auditions run as efficiently as possible. Please contact Co-Chair: Gavin Taylor at (904) 349-3422 email  gtaylor62@me.com or Lisa Smith at (904) 886-4188 or  lisa.ffmc.jrconvention@outlook.com

We hope all students have a very positive experience at our Junior Convention. Students will be competing with the best from around the state. All will be rewarded listening to our talented and dedicated students.

Vickie Stake
FFMC Junior Counselor
