2016 changes

The following changes apply to the Fine Arts Festival

 


 

 

  • ASL presentations are now allowed, but not required, to provide a set of lyric sheets to the evaluators. See page 30.
  • Readers Theater is an official category in the Drama Division. See page 52.
  • Piano Solo, Classical is a new category in the Exhibition Division. See page 58.
  • Stand-Up Comedy is a new category in the Exhibition Division. See page 61.
  • Rap and Vocal rules have been adjusted to clarify allowable background vocals. See pages 74 and 79.
  • Vocal Solo, Classical, Sr. is an official category in the Vocal Division. See page 81.
  • Worship Leading, Solo is an official category in the Vocal Division. See page 82.
  • PennDel will not be participating in Musical Theatre:  All presentations must have a clear Christian message, possess obvious redemptive value, and be presented with ministry effectiveness in mind (FAF Rulebook, page 18).  Additionally, music used in any entry must present a clear Christian message that contributes to effective ministry when viewed within the context of the overall presentation.  Because of the inherent inconsistencies between this category and the FAF rules and guidelines, the PennDel District will not be participating in Musical Theatre.

 


 

DISCLAIMER: this is not an all-inclusive list.  Each participant is responsible to read, understand, and abide by ALL of the information and changes listed in the official 2016 Fine Arts Festival Rule Book.
