MSVMA Festival Registration and Scheduler Below:

Festival Schedulerhttps://msvma-prod.azurewebsites.net/

To help festival run as smoothly as possible, D15 hereby requires that each participating school provide 2 or more volunteers to help with the festivals each day. Volunteers can be the directors, choral educators, teachers, responsible students, parents, or alumni. It is imperative to keep our festivals running on time as well as show hospitality, so that our adjudicators, directors, and choirs each get what we need. We require that each participating school provides valuable assistance. 

Update from the State Office

Late registration  for  S & E Festival as well as Choral Festival will be available for seven (7) days past the deadline for a late fee of $50/event. Late registrations must be paid by credit card. Fees are non-refundable and returned checks are subject to a $15 fee. 

You will not be scheduled without payment or PO. These policies and decisions were made or reaffirmed in order to work within the confines of our technology and honor the time and efforts in the meticulous task of scheduling a festival.
