Another month has flown past! We’re now less than FOUR months away from the festival! Wow!!
With that in mind, here’s the latest mail-out. It’s announcing a bit of friendly competition to get more freshers to IV, continuing the hunt for a Merch Officer, giving details about the next social event (I helped write that bit 😉 ), and reminding everyone that registration is open (2 months until timely registration ends so get cracking)!
From the Convenors’ desk…
There’s nothing like being a Fresher at IV. And there’s nothing like a bit of friendly competition between AICSA choirs.
Here at MIV2018, we’re combining the two in our Free the Freshers Competition.
Two FREE Fresher Registrations are up for grabs across two categories. So each choir gets TWO CHANCES TO WIN!
Category One: Awarded to the choir who registers the most Freshers.
Category Two: Awarded to the choir who registers the most members (fresh and not so fresh) to attend MIV2018. The figure is calculated as a per capita proportion of the choir (based on the census data recently and generously provided by your committees).
The competition is open NOW and closes at the end of timely registration (Midnight 11 November).
After that we’ll be busy notifying the winning choir(s) who can allocate their FREE Fresher Registration however they wish.
They could nominate one Fresher to have their registration fee reduced to zero; split the credit among multiple Freshers to partially reduce the cost OR… actually we think those are the only two options.
So get fighting for your Freshers to party at IV! Every registration received before 11 November bring the prize closer to your choir. Keep an eye on the total current registrants from your choir. More detailed breakdowns and current competition winners are visible to registered and logged in users.
The MIV2018 Committee will determine the competition winners based on registrant information and relevant calculations. Committee decision are final and no debate will be entered into.
Join the MIV2018 team as our Merchandise Officer

To express your interest please reply to this email or email me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Save that (one) day in September
September is a busy month in Melbourne. The wonderful MIV host choirs are preparing for concerts, with LaTUCS and MonUCS performing in September and ROCS performing in October. Meanwhile, there’s sport, sport, sport going on outside.
Come join your choral family to fanatically watch the big game, dip your toes for score updates or ignore it completely with card games, board games and more.
There’ll be BBQs available for pre-game lunch and a tuck shop full of munchies to keep you fuelled for the afternoon.
More details for the Post/Pre Concert Party (that you don’t have to organise) will be released on Facebook and via email soon.
Registration is open.
In less than six months you could be taking the stage with us, a full orchestra and hundreds of fellow choristers to be part of this once-in-a-lifetime musical experience. But you must register to secure your place.
The summer of ’69 will be here before we know it. Register now to be part of the magic. We can’t wait to see you in Melbourne next year!
Peace and love,
Alex and El xoxo
