Rehearsals

After School Rehearsals

  • After school rehearsals CANNOT be made up and are a vital aspect to the overall success of the choral program
  • Missing any rehearsal will affect both the performer and choir(s) alike
  • Missing any rehearsal if unexcused, may result in dismissal from the organization with no submitted funds to be refunded
  • Please plan all outside activities around these rehearsals now to avoid conflicts later
  • Should you accept a conflict past when this calendar was handed to you with any rehearsal or performance, it is expected that you will honor the prior commitment to the choir
  • This includes all sports programs, Driver’s Ed, tutoring, work and family events, etc.
  • Please supply advance notice of a known conflict with ANY rehearsal, a minimum of one (1) week notice in writing in order for it to be excused
  • Being absent from school and missing a rehearsal counts as excused as long as the absence is excused
  • Please plan on attending a sectional to rehearse with Mr. Rawlings when absent

Mandatory Rehearsals

  • This means “full attendance” for the entire rehearsal
  • Late arrivals and early leaves are also not permitted
  • Should a student not comply with these rules, performing in the up-coming concert(s) will not be allowed
  • This includes the Spring Trip
  • It should be noted that these rehearsals are graded for enrolled choir students
  • After school participants may lose their standing in the choral program

Sectionals

Sectionals are on a rotating basis of A, B, C lunches (no D) D lunch may be available with advance notice. This monthly calendar is submitted to students, faculty and families in advance. Make ups are always allowed with no grade penalties as long as they are made up before the close of each marking period. After school choir members are also required to attend these sectionals as they do not receive enough rehearsal time as it is.

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 3:00 PM. Therefore, you may not leave a rehearsal after school prior to 2:55 PM to attend one of these events. You must notify Mr. Rawlings of a known conflict PRIOR to an already scheduled rehearsal. If you are a member of a sport’s program, or mutually scheduled event, please talk to your sponsor/coach(es) about your membership in the choral program so that they are aware of your already prior rehearsal/performance conflicts to avoid any possible interference in the upcoming months.
Please see “Howard County’s Policy” relating to these matters for further clarification. Download policy and contract under “Forms”.
