ATTENDANCE
Regular attendance at rehearsals and concerts is essential to quality ensemble music. If you are unable to attend a rehearsal for any reason, please call your section representative and explain the reason you are unable to attend. No more than three rehearsal can be missed in a concert cycle. If you should have to miss more than three rehearsals, it will be the responsibility of your section representative to notify the conductor who will then decide if you will be permitted to perform the concert in that cycle. Rehearsals are from 7:00 p.m. - 9:00 p.m. at the Harvest Baptist Church in Boulder.
