Technical Requirements for Live Performances

Participating groups are responsible for the equipment necessary to capture their live performance and sending the live stream to Music for All via Zoom. Music for All staff are available to assist you remotely in preparing and testing in advance.

  • Video: one single “high-cam” view is all that is necessary, although groups may choose a more elaborate setup if desired. You can use a webcam , GoPro or even your iPhone or Android device for video capture.
  • Platform: we will connect with you via Zoom, or other similar web conferencing platforms.

There are no limitations to what you can send us if you would like to add any addition aspects of production such as microphones, additional cameras etc.
