Info:

  • For those schools who have attended Midwest Cup before, please note that we have removed the “Dressing Room” portion of your rotation (45 minutes in the dressing rooms of Lied prior to your warm-up).  You still have a 25 minute warm-up and a 15 minute “on deck” time that you may use for last minute instructions.  We hope that you will find this a more efficient use of your time.
  • Finals times are all approximate.  Please be ready to move the finals round along.  I think we can all appreciate finishing the day EARLY!
  • UNL’s BIG RED SINGERS will be performing in exhibition at the end of the daytime competition. 
  • *”Chan” and “Ball” notates the one of the three Chancellor rooms or portion of the Ballroom  that have been reserved as homerooms across the street from the music building in the Embassy Suites.  Please note that ensembles will have to walk outdoors when heading to the warm-up site.
  • DISABILITY ACCOMMODATION:
    UNL Conference Services is committed to providing appropriate accommodations to guests with disabilities. In order to ensure that appropriate arrangements can be made, guests with disabilities who need reasonable accommodations must contact the Director of Services for Students with Disabilities at 402/472-3787 at least three weeks prior to their scheduled arrival on campus. Please be prepared to tell that office the name of the conference/camp and dates of attendance.
