All Performers Will Receive A
FREE Convention Registration!

If you're a competitor or performing in exhibition, JAD and Cardinal have both agreed to provide FREE convention registrations to any JAD or Cardinal member that registers and crosses the stage.  Register as normal through Member Center.

 

What if we want to perform

but not compete?

You can.  When you register your quartet or chorus, you can designate if and how you would like your performance evaluated by the judges.  You can have an unpublished score and evaluation for your-eyes-only, or you can perform without getting scored or evaluated.

Will we still get a free convention registration?

YES!  We want to encourage as many choruses and chapters to perform as possible without the pressure to compete.  Many groups have been working hard during the pandemic and we want to provide them a performance opportunity in front of a large, appreciative audience.  Register as normal through Member Center.
