December 4, 2014

Being that winter break is just around the corner, for music students, that means so is this year’s winter concert! For concert participants, the days leading up to the event are full of rehearsals, but for school administrators, there is so much more involved. Where will the concert take place? What decorations need to be set up? Is technical support required? In addition to asking and answering all of these questions, school administrators assume the responsibility of finding and setting up all of the equipment needed to make the day a total success.

If you’re in charge of your school’s winter concert, use the following checklist to determine if you have all of the equipment you need:

  • Adequate seating solutions for guests and participants.
  • Microphones to project students’ voices and instruments┬áto the back of the room.
  • Music stands for those who will rely on sheet music during the concert.
  • Accompanying instruments such as a piano for music teachers to use during the performance.

Most importantly, you will need to make sure you have a stage and/or risers large enough to fit all students comfortably during the performance. But with so many stage and riser solutions available, which one should you choose?
