will need to provide their own black binder to hold their music during the concerts.
is expected of me if I join?
Each week we will begin rehearsals promptly at 7:00pm. Don't come
at 7:10pm. Vocal warm-ups are an important part to our rehearsals and should not be looked upon as an extra 10 minutes to
get to rehearsal. We sing hard for 2 hours with a short break and your voice is a muscle that needs to be stretched and warmed
up just like an athlete getting ready to run a race. We also use this time to listen to each other as a group for blend.
If you know you will be late or will miss a rehearsal please contact your section leader or me and let us know.
We care about one another in this group and get worried about people. Even though we are a large group EVERYONE is important
and you are missed when you are not here. It is important that you are at all rehearsals throughout the semester. Choral
singing is not only about learning the music but about choral blend with each other. The sound is different when someone is
missing. Remember that when you walk through the door into the rehearsal space we are all one. No matter what our level of
musical training, how many degrees we've earned or what kind of ice cream we prefer, we are all singers. I ask that you
bring your best every week and work hard.
Please bring your music, pencil and a ready to work positive attitude
with you each week.
Sectional rehearsals will be scheduled during the first half of the semester from 6:10 - 6:50pm
in the choir room at Trinity Presbyterian. These sectionals are not mandatory but are offered to help you learn notes.
Please remember no perfume, cologne or any strong scents at rehearsals or performances. Some people are highly allergic.
