Rehearsals

Looking for audition information?

Attendance Policy

Rehearsals for most ensembles and choirs commence in Week 3 of Term 1, 2019, and occur each week unless you have been notified via email or SMS to the contrary.

Being involved in a College Choir/Ensemble/Band instils you with the life skills of responsibility, discipline, group cooperation and dedication. Every member is making a valued and necessary contribution to team - there are no reserves.

If a student signs up to join an ensemble, they make a commitment to the ensemble to attend every rehearsal and performance. To allow for growth and improvement within the music ensembles there must be consistency of attendance.

If a student is unable to attend a rehearsal due to sickness, notification must be supplied to the Director of Performance Music in order to properly maintain rolls. This may be provided in the form of signed note or email to music@chac.qld.edu.au. Parents/guardians are asked not to schedule appointments for students during allocated rehearsal times. If a student misses two rehearsals for which no explanation from a parent/guardian is provided, then the student will be asked to reconsider their involvement in the ensemble and a letter will be sent home to parents informing them of this situation. Rolls are called at every rehearsal by conductors and are kept on the school file. These rolls are used at the end of each school year when decisions are made in regards to awards and the appointment of school leaders for the following year.
