Potential Winter Park Ski-Music Festival adjudicators-

Thanks for coming to this web page!  If you will please, complete the below questionnaire/form for us.  Your responses will assist us in knowing which adjudicators are available on particular festival weeks and dates.

At this time, we are still having bands, choirs and orchestras registering to join us for next spring, and the ensemble makeup for each festival week remains unknown.  Once ensemble and performance information begins to solidify for us in the upcoming months, we will then begin selecting the most appropriate and available adjudicators.

We understand your schedule may fill after you complete this form.  If another definitive judging opportunity comes along, or you need to schedule any future events on dates you indicated below, please go ahead and plan for those if we have not reached out to you first.  We understand!

If you have any questions, feel free to contact us at 866-625-6821 or at info@winterparkskimusicfestival.com

Potential Adjudicator questionnaire

    Let's start by getting your Contact Information

  • Tell us a bit about your music education background and areas you feel capable for adjudication

  • Summary of performance schedules during festival weeks

  • Next, let us ask about when you could judge for the Winter Park Ski-Music Festival. Until the performance schedules begin to solidify in February, we simply like to ask now if adjudicators are available during a specific festival week(s). Festival weeks that do NOT include Good Friday or Easter Sunday, instrumental performances can be on Thursday evenings, definitely any time during Friday, and possibly Saturday mornings. Choral performances for these festival weeks are typically scheduled within Friday evenings only. Festival weeks that include Good Friday and Easter Sunday, are often times less attended, and we try our best to have instrumental performances anytime on Thursday, and possibly Friday morning. Choral performances are sometime within Thursday evening only.
  • Instrumental Judges: For NON- Easter weeks, and for judges flying into Denver, we like to have you up in Winter Park no later than either Wednesday evening, or very early Thursday morning, through Saturday morning. Instrumental judges need to be in Winter Park no later than Wednesday evening for a Easter festival week, through Friday morning.
  • Choral Judges: For NON- Easter weeks, and for judges flying into Denver, we like to have you up in Winter Park no later than Friday morning for Friday evening performances. Choral judges need to be in Winter Park no later than Thursday morning for Thursday evening performances on a Easter festival week.
  • The above days and times of day are when we need adjudication. If we select you to adjudicate for us, we can possibly accommodate you with a day prior arrival, or a day afterward departure with skiing, if desired.
  • Miscellaneous Questions

  • For the past 20+ years, the festival staff sets up its office and stays overnight in a large modern 8 bedroom cabin. This cabin has large communal living, dining and kitchen areas. Each bedroom has 2 double beds and private bath. Festival adjudicators also stay within this same cabin. Adjudicators tell us they really enjoy being in the same space with other judges, and the festival staff, as opposed to a private accommodation without other judge’s interaction. We are told, it feels like a family gathering of sorts. There are times when the cabin may seem like a whirlwind of activity, with lots of musician fellowship. But whenever a person wants to refrain from others, there is nothing awkward when a person retreats to their bedroom for sleep, solitude or work on their computer. Most often, we can provide a private room for judges. Sometimes, we may ask a judge to share a bedroom with a another same gender judge, especially if they are already friends.
