Choir rehearsals are a vital part of DCU's on-going pursuit of excellence in performance.
Rehearsals are designed to improve the quality of the music we perform and we do not wish them to be “note bashing” exercises. Consequently, it is expected that members will spend time at home getting familiar with the notes so that rehearsals can concentrate on the musical performance.
We hope to provide assistance for those who are not sight readers to achieve this.
Regular attendance at rehearsals is therefore expected of all members.
If attendance falls below 70% for any member in the rehearsal period for a concert (e.g. if a member misses more than 3 rehearsals in a 10 week “term”.) it will be assumed that member will not be performing at that concert. They are welcome to continue attending rehearsals however.
Members are expected to pay for all rehearsals whether they attend or not.
Those who attend but do not participate (e.g. due to sore throat or similar) will not have this counted as an absence.
Before applying, please check the calendar on our website to ensure that you are able to commit to rehearsal dates.
