After-School Choir Requirements for Non-Choral Students

Students who choose to take After-School Choir are considered a member of the Choral Department and are held to the same standards and expectations of students who take choir during the day. Students who fail to comply with the following terms have the right to be dismissed by Ms. Cardillo from the ensemble. It is a privilege to be in After-School Choir and those students must show that they are capable of practicing on their own and showing up to rehearsals prepared. Please use the handbook as a reference throughout the year.

Rehearsals and Concerts
Students are expected to attend all Thursday rehearsals, dress rehearsals, and concerts (including adjudication). Please consult the handbook and make note of all important dates on the calendar.

Uniforms
Students are required to rent/purchase proper uniform attire. Please be on the lookout for the uniform forms to be distributed during rehearsal and collected in a timely manner.

Absences
Students are allowed only 2 unexcused absences from after-school choir rehearsals. After 2 unexcused absences, they may be dismissed from the ensemble. Each after-school rehearsal is crucial to prepare for our concerts as these students only rehearse one hour once a week. Conflicts must be communicated with Ms. Cardillo 1 week in advance of the rehearsal and in writing. E-mail: Natalie_Cardillo@hcpss.org.

Sectionals
Students are required to attend weekly sectionals during their lunch time. Sectionals are offered A and B days during A, B, and C lunch. If a student has D lunch both days, then they must e-mail/talk to Ms. Cardillo and schedule a time to meet. The following sectionals are required per quarter:

Quarter 1 (September 9 - November 1) = 8 sectionals

Quarter 2 (November 4 - January 24) = 8 sectionals

Quarter 3 (January 28 - April 3) = 10 sectionals

Quarter 4 (April 14 – May 14 Spring Concert) = 3 sectionals



Spring Trip
Students who participate in After-School Choir are invited to go on our annual spring trip. If at any point during the year the student has more than 2 absences from rehearsals, inconsistently attends sectionals, has a large number of absences from school, has poor grades, etc., Ms. Cardillo has the right to not grant them permission to go on the Spring Trip even if a deposit or payment has already been submitted. The student must take personal responsibility for being an after-school choir member.

Sports Practices and Games
We do our best to accommodate all participation with outside activities of the choral program.  The Glenelg High School rule is NO practice or game may begin before 3:00pm.  Therefore you may not leave a rehearsal after school prior to 2:55pm.
