All performers will receive a FREE convention registration!

If you are a competitor or performing in exhibition, Cardinal and JAD have both agreed to provide FREE convention registrations to any Cardinal or JAD member that registers and crosses the stage. Just register as normal through Member Center.

What if we want to perform but not compete?
You can! When you register your quartet or chorus, you can designate if and how you would like your performance evaluated by the judges. You can have an unpublished score and evaluation for your eyes only, or you can perform without getting scored and evaluated.

Will we still get a free convention registration?
YES!  We want to encourage as many choruses and chapters to perform as possible without the pressure to compete.  Many groups have been working hard during the pandemic and we want to provide them a performance opportunity in front of a large, appreciative audience.  Register as normal through Member Center.
