Standing Ovation Program

What is the Standing Ovation Program?

  • It is a non publicized evaluation between only the chapter and the Standing Ovation Reviewer.
  • It is an evaluation of a performance for both choruses and quartets.
  • It will recognize strengths in the performance.
  • It will provide suggestions and recommendations to enhance the next performance.
  • It will address not only the music side of the performance but will examine the venue and the technical aspect of the show.
