Weekly Choir Update

Uniforms

At this point all uniforms should have been picked up or tried on thanks to the volunteer efforts on behalf of Ann Hankins.  If you did not have an opportunity to get your uniform this week or last or you need to make arrangements to try  contact Ann by Friday.  Ann will be placing her final order on Saturday.  You may contact her via e-mail (ahankins@centralokhomeschoolchoirs.com) or phone (405-225-6760).

A Friendly Reminder

Just a friendly reminder concerning a few policies in our choir handbook that you will not want to forget as the semester progresses:

  • For us to achieve our goals of musical excellence, attendance at all rehearsals are expected. Therefore, if a member misses 5 or more rehearsals in a semester for any reason, he/she may continue to attend rehearsals but will not be allowed to perform (including tour travel/participation) the remainder of the semester.  If you cannot attend a rehearsal for any reason, please inform your director via email or by phone.
  • All members are expected to be picked up at or before 12:00 p.m. (depending on their rehearsal time). As a courtesy to our staff, if a member is not picked up by 12:10 p.m. the following fee will be billed to their account: $5 for every 5 minutes their ride is late (i.e. 12:15=$5, 12:30=$20, etc.).
  • For those on the monthly plan, tuition is due on the first rehearsal of the month. For those on the semester payment plan, tuition is due the first rehearsal of September and January. A $5 late fee will be added per week to each payment after the due date. A singer will not be allowed to attend rehearsal after the fourth week of nonpayment.
Thank you in advance for your cooperation in these manners.  

Looking Ahead

Looking ahead to November, please check your calendars.  There will be NO rehearsal during the week of Thanksgiving (11/20) and Circle the State with Song's first rehearsal will be on 11/13 at 10 a.m.  Also, looking to the first week of December, make sure you have your calendars marked for the Illuminati/Bella Voce One Day Tour on 12/6 and our first Friday Christmas Concert on 12/7.  Right now would be a great time to start inviting your friends to the Friday Christmas Concert and the Thursday Edmond Library showcase.  Yes, Christmas will be here before you know it!
