CHAMBER CHOIR SCHEDULE & INFO

Chamber Choir performs 4 concert cycles each season and its regular weekly rehearsals are Thursdays 7 – 9:30 PM in the Rehearsal Hall, 269 State Rd. in West Bath. The choir also has one Saturday morning retreat per concert cycle. Membership dues are $125 per concert cycle (includes purchase of music and all fees).

A maximum of two (2) absences are permitted per concert cycle: Fall, Winter, Spring & Summer are allowed for any reason (e.g., illness, vacation).
Retreats are considered rehearsals and are required in terms of attendance.
No absences are permitted during concert week.
It is not recommended to plan an absence the week before concert due to the nature of cumulative efforts toward readiness for performance.
Any and all absences should always be communicated and discussed in consultation with the Director in advance.
Ashley Albert is our Choir Manager and will be in charge of recording attendance and talking with singers on a weekly basis regarding their attendance as needed. Feel free to approach her or me directly.
