Excused and Unexcused Absences

Note from Rita...I have had choirs for over 30 years.  I have made every mistake you can imagine and learned some very hard lessons.  One lesson I learned over and over again was that the most important aspect of any choir is the dedication of its members.  I would rather have 12 dedicated people in a choir that I can truly depend on, than 50 people who might show up for rehearsal and might not.  Being a member of a choir is a very serious commitment, not only to the choir as a whole, but to each of the other members who are depending on your part.  Therefore, one of the stipulations of any of my choirs is that if you have more than two unexcused absences, you will not be able to perform with the Choir for the next performance.  You may rejoin the Choir again after attending four consecutive rehearsals.  Unexcused means that you don’t call and you don’t come.  An excused absence means that you have a very good reason that you will not be able to come and you notify me before rehearsal to let me know that you will not be coming.  Of course, there is the occasional emergency and those can be discussed.  In southern terms this is called kindness and courtesy!
