Invitation Letter from Dr. Patricia Fleitas


Registrant Participation

Each school should submit one registration. If you have balance issues with your participants, please contact Dr. Stacie Rossow (srossow@fau.edu) BEFORE registering.

Registrations are due by Friday, October 20, 2023

NEW THIS YEAR: Registrations are through FAU Marketplace. Payment must be made at time of registration via this online system. This system will shut down an ensemble when it has reached maximum capacity so we recommend early registration. For registration you need to know number in each voice part in each ensemble and chaperones for lunch. Simply select the number of participants in each voice part and add to your cart. 

A separate document is requested for Student names and shirt sizes. Please download this form and email to Stacie Rossow (srossow@fau.edu) by October 23, 2023.
