REHEARSALS

 

Rehearsals are held weekly on Monday evenings from 7:00 P.M. – 9:00 P.M. in the choir room of First Methodist Conroe, 4308 W. Davis Street.  Section rehearsals may be scheduled from 6:30 – 6:55 p.m. for those members desiring additional help. Occasionally, the rehearsal time may be extended prior to concert time.  If unavoidable changes are necessary, you will be informed as soon as possible.  Scheduled concerts are always preceded by a dress rehearsal usually held the evening prior to the concert. 

 

A nursery is now available for those needing one.  The cost is $10.00 per evening.  You may leave rehearsal 5 minutes early to collect your child.  Nursery workers are employees of the church and have undergone Safe Sanctuary training. 

 

REHEARSAL REMINDERS

1.      Please be in your seat, ready to rehearse, at the appointed time with your music and a PENCIL.  Each singer must provide his/her own music folder which could be as simple as a black 3-ring binder to a formal choral folder.  You may purchase the latter from MCCS for $25.

 

2.       Should you arrive late, please do not take your seat while music-making is in progress.  Simply wait until a break occurs, then enter quietly.

 

3.        Music is to be marked in PENCIL, the first of which will be provided.  Mark your music as instructed by the director.  DO NOT rely on your memory.  It is better to mark too much than too little.  Also, write your name on your music.  Sometimes it walks off.

 

4.        Members who have missed a rehearsal are required to get all markings and other information from their section leader prior to the beginning of the next rehearsal.

 

5.        The ideal rehearsal time should be spent working on musical goals.  Therefore,  you may need to spend outside time working to secure notes and rhythms.  Some rehearsal time will be spent in sectionals. 

 

6.        Normally, a 10 minute break will occur around 8:00 P.M. We enjoy snacks and fellowship during this time.  (Please see Rehearsal Snack information).

 

7.         Please restrict all conversation to time periods before and after rehearsals, and during the break.

 

8.          Members are responsible for checking attendance roster at the entry door before rehearsal or at the rehearsal break.  Members will also be provided a nametag.
