Rehearsals

REMEMBER: We're back to singing from 7.45 - 9.30

To ensure that the quality of our performances remains at the high level we have become renowned for we do ask that all those intending to sing in any concert meet a minimum level of attendance.  As a general rule this is 75%.  The precise number of 'must attend' rehearsals will be decided by our MD, based on the complexity of the music that term.
In all cases however the rehearsal on the day of the concert, along with the one immediately preceding the concert are mandatory.  In addition, if you are not planning to sing on the concert day, but have been coming along to rehearsals for the sheer pleasure of singing, we would respectfully ask that you don't attend the last Tuesday before concert day.

Handel Dixit Dominus 3rd November 

Rehearsals are split over either side of the summer.  You need to meet minimum rehearsal attendance for BOTH halves to be able to sing in the concert.

There are 9 rehearsals in each half and you can miss max of 2 rehearsals in each session.  

Note: there is no rehearsal in May half term, 29th May.

Subs are £70 covering all 18 weeks. 

These can be split, by exception. Please discuss with Jenny.


CHANGE TO ATTENDANCE RULE
By exceptionif you really need to, you can have up to three absences in one term and one absence in the other, but if taken in the first half they must must not be all three together just before we break up for the summer, or all together near performance in the second, otherwise singing in the concert will not be possible.
If you have concerns or require clarity please speak to Gill

SCORES:
We have the below library editions.  There are two pieces of music:

Vivaldi Gloria - you need the OUP edition and it MUST be edited by Paul Everett (there are various OUP editions make sure you get the right one!)

Handel Dixit Dominus - Novello edition - make sure it's the Watkin Shaw edition

Subscriptions

Subs are payable each term, and vary depending on the length of the rehearsal period.
The subs are set at a level to cover the society's fixed costs; i.e. all the non-concert costs. 

These are not insignificant, at almost £9000 over a typical 39/40 weeks of rehearsals, and include; school hire, MD fee, Repetiteur fee, Annual Insurance, Website, Library membership & hire fees. 


For the academic year Sept 2016 - July 2017 the subs equated to less than £3.50 per session

Subs for 2017-2018 are shown here. Note that we only have three rehearsal periods, but the total rehearsal time is still 39 weeks and, over the year, subs are actually anticipated to add up to slightly less than 2016-17.  

(Subs for Jan-Jul 2018 are subject change if any of our fixed costs vary)


Everyone's financial circumstances are different and should any one wish to spread the impact of a particular term's subs please reach out to Jenny, our Treasurer.
