For performers only:

Thanks for participating in the Oct 18 small places event in Convocation Hall. This concert is being produced by CCE people, with support from Amnesty International Canada and their small places tour program.

Please edit this page to add technical requirements for your performance (instruments you'll be playing; chairs, microphones, cables you'll need; positioning). We also have a rear-projection screen in the room, with internet connection. If you wish send me an image or web page to be projected on the screen behind you while you perform, please send them to me. If you want an web page just add the URL below. I assume most of us will perform solo, but if you want to bring in one or two others that's fine - just include all the tech requirements for your group, and add their names too.

Please also include an estimate of how long you'd like to perform. Let's say 15 minutes or so at the most.

If you know what you'll perform (title/composer/lyricist) you can add that, so I can write up a program. If you don't know yet, add that part later.
