-Rehearsal Notes-

(After each rehearsal, I will post the activity from that session, so those who were absent can learn what they missed for the next time we meet, and so those who were present can review as needed. Once we learn part of a piece, you are expected to know it for the next rehearsal! If you were absent when we learned something, you are expected to be familiar with what you missed by the next rehearsal. You are expected to be familiar enough with the keyboard to rehearse on your own. Please utilize the resources around you!)

Be prepared at every rehearsal with your folder, music, and a pencil!

~Concert Attire~

[NOTE: For the 2020-21 school year, students will NOT be asked to purchase concert attire through the school. We will perform in simple clothing items that can most likely be found at home.]

Members of Chamber Choir purchase their own attire through the school. Information on this, as well as the Gertrude Hawk fundraising opportunity to offset costs, will become available within the first month of school.

Chamber Choir women will choose their own shoes. They must be formal and all black with a small heel, if any. They may be open or closed-toed.

Chamber Choir men may choose their own black formal shoes if they wish, or they may purchase them through the school.
