3 Key Things to Have a Successful Holiday Concert

December 1, 2017

The holiday season is rapidly approaching, and we’re sure you’ve been diligently working to prepare your auditorium for the winter concerts and festivities ahead. But, aside from the necessary instruments and well-rehearsed students, here are three key factors that you’ll need to ensure that your holiday concert is one to remember.

1. Adequate Audio Visual

A school concert is nothing if the audience can’t hear the music! A proper A/V setup is important to project musical instruments and voices into the audience. Be sure to check your microphones and speakers, and make any necessary repairs or replacements before the big day. It’s a good idea to test your A/V setup at least one week prior to the concert, and then again the morning of just to be safe.

2. Working Risers

If your school offers the option to participate in chorus or chorale in addition to a band or orchestra, you’ll need to have a set of functioning risers for your vocalists to stand on. As an alternative, you may want to purchase a small stage for the students to project from instead. The choice is up to you!

3. Comfortable Auditorium Seating

If your auditorium seating is outdated, run-down or not adequate enough to hold a sizable audience, give your local school furniture experts a call! A quick inspection can help you determine where upgrades need to be made in order to make your guests comfortable as they were their rising stars perform.

No matter what you require, Nickerson Corporation has a wide variety of stages and risers as well as movable and fixed seating options to help your students blow their holiday concert out of the water! If you’re unsure exactly what you need, we can take a look at the venue number of students participating and the anticipated audience size to determine the correct products to help make your performance run as smoothly as possible.
