Choir is unlike most classes, sports, or group activities, in that we rely on every player to participate in every event. There are no ‘benchwarmers” in the choir. We work together and rely on each other to perform at the highest level possible. One missing person makes a huge difference. In that light, please make note of the following dates and do everything in your power not to schedule over these performances.
Students are required to attend all concerts and performances. Listed below is a tentative list of activities for this year. Those that are mandatory are marked with an (*). All others are considered optional. As with most performing groups, sometimes performance opportunities come about during the course the year on an unexpected basis. The director will use all means possible to keep these to a minimum and to give students as much advance notice as possible if it is to be a required activity.
