Due to WYSO’s regular Saturday rehearsals, the festival volunteer crew has to move a lot of gear into the Humanities Building rooms on a compressed schedule, and those rooms will not be available before 1:00 pm. At 1:00 pm, a festival volunteer will show students from Madison East and Madison West to their respective Humanities Building rooms. COATS AND CASES: Each school will have a seating area of the Music Hall balcony assigned to them to store coats and cases during the afternoon. The same area will be available for each school to listen to the other groups during the evening concert. Please do not leave valuables unattended.
