Registration Requirements North American choruses must be members in good standing with GALA Choruses in order to register for Festival. This means all open dues payments must be cleared, including 2015 dues. If you have any question about your dues status contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org@galachoruses.org European and Oceanic choruses are granted reciprocity and do not need GALA Choruses membership to register for Festival. The same courtesy is granted to North American choruses seeking to register for Various Voices (European festival) or Out and Loud (Oceania festival).
Register your chorus early! When all performance spaces are filled a waiting list will be established. There is usually 10-12% attrition and choruses from the waiting list will be added to the performance schedule as spots open. The current performance schedule can accommodate: 11430-minute chorus sets 8Coffee Concerts 3815-minute ensemble performances
