If you’re considering singing with us, but haven’t previously, here are some notes of what to expect:
- Plan to be in your seat 5 minutes before rehearsal starts, checked in, with 2 sharpened pencils and a closed bottled water supply.
- Look up at the conductor at the beginning and ending of each phrase, even as you read your music. Do not bury your head in the music. Hold it level.
- Do not wear any perfume, cologne or scented products of any kind at any rehearsal or performance as some members are very sensitive to these fragrances.
- At about mid-point of the rehearsal, we will take a break and enjoy some refreshments and social time.
- For each MasterWorks Chorus semester, a potluck supper will be held at 6PM prior to a rehearsal. You’ll find that Cappella Cantorum members also are a very talented bunch of cooks as well!
- Rehearsals are generally held on Mondays from 7:30PM to 9:30PM at John Winthrop Middle School in Deep River. When the school is closed for holiday or vacation, we generally rehearse at St. Paul Evangelical Lutheran Church in Old Saybrook.
- For each production, members may miss two rehearsals.
- At least one Sunday evening make-up rehearsal will be scheduled for each production at St. Paul Evangelical Lutheran Church in Old Saybrook.
- If a member misses three regular rehearsals, an audition will be required. Auditions will be arranged with the Music Director and/or the Accompanist.
- If a member has more than three absences, they will be referred to the Music Director for a decision as to whether or not they may participate in the concert performances.
- The first night singer registration is considered a full rehearsal.
- For MasterWorks Chorus productions, attendance is required at both orchestral rehearsals during the week prior to the performance(s).
- It is requested that any member finds they are unable to perform in a concert performance, that they please notify the Membership Director or an officer of the board as soon as possible.
