What are the expectations regarding attendance?
Regular attendance at rehearsals, meetings and scheduled performances is essential for all members. We depend on everyone's presence to grow together and mutually support each other. It is expected you will attend a majority of the weekly rehearsals and will arrive on time, ready to sing, which is fostered each week by regular attendance and being on time.
