Mechanicsville, Virginia. See attached map and directions.

ENTERING AND EXITING KD:

If your group decides to visit Kings Dominion prior to performing at Hanover High School you must have
each student’s hand stamped upon exiting the park. This will allow your group re-entry to Kings
Dominion later in the day without any difficulties.

There will be a vehicle-parking fee of $10.00. Bus parking is free and the bus driver will receive a
complimentary admission ticket at Group Admissions.

PERFORMANCE TIMES:

You will be sent your warm up and performance times via email upon receipt of the deposit. If you have
any questions about your times, please call Barry Flowe at 804-814-8681.

REGISTRATION:

Directors should report to the registration area at Hanover High School at least 30 minutes prior to
the group’s warm-up time. You should turn in three (3) sets of original scores with consecutively
numbered measures. These will be returned to you after your performance. No photocopies will be
accepted without documented permission.

Directors should instruct their students to enter the auditorium to observe other groups only between
performances. Students may not be unsupervised while at Hanover High School.

WARM UP AREA:

The band room is the only designated warm up area. Tuning devices are not available; however you are
permitted to bring your own. Music stands will not be available in the warm up area.

PERFORMANCE:

Each group has 20 minutes to perform, which includes set-up, performing selections for adjudication,
and clearing the stage. You must perform two selections. Please be considerate of others and keep
your performance time within the designated limit. There will be a stage crew to assist you with set-up
and clearing. Music should be chosen at the director’s discretion - preferably selected from the graded
state school band/orchestra festival list.
