Rehearsals and Attendance

Rehearsals and Attendance Because each singer holds a valuable place in the choir, rehearsal is mandatory. Attendance and punctuality in each weekly rehearsal is vital to the success of each singer and choir. Regular attendance provides a multitude of benefits for each singer such as camaraderie with fellow singers, consistent, sequential accomplishment of musical skills and literature and preparation for wonderful performances. A tremendous amount of music is taught each week, therefore it is very difficult for singers to catch up on what was missed due to an absence. This impacts not only the absent singer, but the entire choir in its accomplishments in learning music and beautifying their sound. Rehearsals are expected to take a high priority in each child’s life. GCW expects a significant commitment to consistent and punctual attendance at rehearsals. Thank you, in advance, for your support and cooperation in maintaining our high standards. A maximum of three absences will be tolerated per semester, (extenuating circumstances will be considered). In order to be excused, email GCW: girlschoirofwilmington@gmail.com prior to the rehearsal.

Attendance Check In/Out

These two actions are imperative to the safety and function of the choir. Attendance is kept by the check in procedure so if you don’t check-in, you’re marked absent. Check-in simply involves stopping to say hello to the ‘Attendance Monitor’.

The Attendance Monitor will be at the door for Check-out. Wait quietly until your parent/guardian comes for you. The Attendance Monitor must be able to see your parent before you leave. If a choir member is driving, we would still like for you to say good bye to the Attendance Monitor.
