The motions below are all in either the CPA/State Festival or All Region/State manual. As such they may be voted on in the business meeting on Wednesday, July 20th. If they pass they will become effective immediately.
MOTION 1 - to amend the bullet point in rule 3.2.2 of the all region/state manual that currently reads “Titles will not be made public until posted on the ArkCDA website.” To read “Titles will be posted on the ArkCDA website on May 1st."
RATIONALE - Directors with money remaining in their budgets at the end of the year would like to use those funds to purchase all region music to avoid losing the funds in the next years' budget. COMMENT - This assumes the titles will be known by May 1st. Titles not reported in time would be posted as soon as they become available.
MOTION 2 - to amend rule 4.4.3 of the CPA/State Festival manual by deleting the third bullet point (Solos, duets and trios may not enter state festival).
RATIONALE: The solo & small ensemble festival is considered part of state festival as noted in rule 4.1.8.
MOTION 3 - to add a new rule in 4.4.2 of the CPA/State Festival manual to read - “A selection published with accompaniment may not be used to fulfill the a cappella requirement unless it specifically states that the accompaniment is optional.”
RATIONALE: - A piece written with accompaniment that is not expressly stated as optional was intended to be performed with the accompaniment as written.
MOTION 4 - to add a new bullet point to rule 4.4.3 - “Timing in the warm up room will start when the group is officially called by the warm up room monitor into the warm up room. Timing on the stage will begin when the first student enters the stage."
RATIONALE: - Currently there is no rule in writing that specifically states when timing begins. In the past we have more or less said the timing begins when the first student enters the room. Which means if a group is missing a student or students they can stall until they get there.
MOTION 5 - to add a new rule in 4.4.6 - “Music performed at CPA must be performed with the voicing specified in the published edition unless written permission has been granted by the copyright holder. “
RATIONALE: - Changing the voicing of piece is technically creating an arrangement of the piece - a copyright violation unless permission is given by the copyright holder.
