All accompaniment for the choirs will be played live on the grand piano. Despite this fact, it is still being requested that we mic the choirs. :-(

The piano will need to be miced and sent through monitors because it apparently going to be placed somewhere other than the center of the stage. It will also need to be routed through the house speakers if better reason does not prevail and we amplify the choirs.

Most accompaniment for soloists/ensembles will be played live on the piano as well, although some may request recorded accompaniment. All accompaniment recordings are already completed (they were used for ISSMA) and are on CD's.

I've been told that we can expect several solos, 2 quartets, and a sextet. Therefore, I'm planning on using only two wired microphones.
