As we approach the recital, I want to inform you of dress code, what to expect at rehearsals and what to bring with you to rehearsals and recital.
Dress Code for performers at the recital: Dressy or Dressy Casual
This means no sneakers or flipflops, no bare bellies, no jeans, shorts, or comfy pants. All skirts must be approximately knee-length. This is an opportunity to appear as a serious performer. If you have questions, please ask.
Dress Rehearsal: Sunday, June 10th 2-3:30pm.
All students are required to attend this rehearsal for the group songs. It is at the same location as the recital, in the Dinner Theater. Please bring your lyrics or sheet music. You will not be permitted to share with any other student. Also, please bring a pencil to take notes. We will start promptly at 2pm, please allow time to walk from your parking spot.
At the dress rehearsal, we will work only on group songs. This rehearsal will be our only group practice time. You must already know your music and be prepared to take notes on where to stand and if you need to move while you’re singing. I will video-record the rehearsal and put it on youtube for practicing during the week leading into the recital.
Day of the Recital: Saturday June 16th, 3-5pm
Students must arrive by 2:45pm. All students who wish to warm-up with me must be at the Dinner Theater at 2:30pm.
At this point, the length of the recital will be approximately 1 ½ hours. All students are expected to stay for the entire concert. It is very important to provide an audience for your peers as they have been an audience for you. The recital is just as important to watch and listen to/learn from other singers as it is an opportunity for you to perform.
Students must arrive at the performance already ‘dressed-to-impress’ and must bring their copy of their lyrics or music for the group songs. Students will not be permitted to share during the concert. All other music is memorized.
The fee for each student is $20. This can be paid in cash or check (written to me). It is due by the end of the group rehearsal. I will give each accompanist one check to cover their fees. For students participating only in the group songs, the fee is $10.
You will receive an email in the next few days for scheduling individual rehearsals for solos. These 10 minute rehearsals take place at the piano player’s house in 4S Ranch.
