Rehearsal Attendance

Although an amateur choir, the quality of our performances is very important to us. We hope that you will be able to make it to every rehearsal each term, but we’re realistic enough to know that “life” gets in the way.

CHORAL WORKS: If you want to sing in a choral concert on a performance day, we ask that you attend a minimum number of rehearsals each term (typically 75%), with the final rehearsal (usually on the afternoon of the concert) being mandatory. The actual number of rehearsals that you will be required to attend will be based on the number of rehearsal slots available to us and the complexity of the music, and will be decided by our Musical Director. If you’re planning to be away/miss some, don’t forget to try and keep a “spare”, especially in case of illness! And if you know can’t make the concert day, that doesn't mean we don’t want you to join us on a Wednesday; come along, sing, and enjoy the evening! As we approach the concert day we may ask that those not singing on the concert day don't attend the last Wednesday rehearsal, in order that our MD can get a true reflection of sound/balance; we hope you'll understand this rationale. We may also ask that this final wednesday be mandatory

SHOWS: All participants in a show will be asked to provide us with a list of 'NA's (Not Available dates) at the start of the rehearsal period. These NAs can then be used to plan the rehearsal schedule accordingly. There will be some mandatory dates. If you can't make these you won't unfortunately, be able to participate in the show. There may or may not be a minimum attendance rule, depending on the nature of the show. Participation will be at the discretion of the director/committee based on complexity of show and your level of NAs.
