DELEGATE REGISTRATION IS OPEN!

For Individual Singers and Non-Singers

Online Early Delegate Registration is now open.  In order to perform at Festival 2016, an individual member of a chorus must be registered as a Delegate, as well as a member of the performing chorus. Non-singers who plan to see multiple concert blocks may also find it to their advantage to register as a delegate, rather than buying separate tickets to multiple events.
 
There will be no paper registration - all delegates must be registered through the Integra Planner application. Delegates may register themselves by creating an account in Integra, or through bulk registration by a chorus Administrator, typically the Chorus Manager or Festival Liaison. Each account username is an email address unique to a single user. To access Integra, go to https://galachoruses.integraplanner.net/Reg.
 
When a new account is created, the delegate will be sent an email message from Integra Planner with a link to set their password. Action must be taken within 24 hours else the password will expire and will need to be reset again.
Review your contact information carefully, as all entered information - including salutations, initials, suffixes. "known as" nicknames - will appear on your Registration Badge.
 
During the registration process, you will be prompted to enter/verify your Contact information and  Organisation (chorus) affiliation.  You will also be asked the following questions:
Will you be performing?
Do you have any accessibility requirements?
After saving your information you will be required to open an Invoice, and select a Payment method. Payments may be made online with a credit card (administered by PayPal), or Offline by check. In order to secure Early Registration prices, full payment must be made by November 30, 2015.  Prices for both Regular and Senior registration will increase on December 1.

COFFEE CONCERTS

Wake Up and Hear the Music

The idea of morning Coffee Concerts was instituted for the 2012 GALA Festival.  It's a way for choruses to present a longer, more fully produced set of music than the usual 30-minute no-frills performance.
 
Nine GALA choruses have been selected by committee to showcase auditioned works that offer multi-disciplinary performance, new commissions, and/or especially unique programming.
 
Anna Crusis Women's Chorus -  2 Lips: Stronger for the Struggle
Transcending culture, time and communities, ANNA sings of freedom and a joyful future in which all voices are heard.

Gay Men's Chorus of Los Angeles - Mano a Mano: Where Los Angeles and Havana Meet
