All singers are expected to attend all rehearsals and concert performances. The CN attendance policy of two excused absences per semester is intended primarily for illness or unavoidable conflicts. Each singer is also expected to notify me ahead of time regarding any such absences (email or text—215-499-1293).
Advance knowledge makes it possible for Ed plan rehearsals more efficiently with a minimum of wasted time. If you miss more than two rehearsals, either excused or not, it is up to Ed to judge whether you are concert-ready. Emergencies happen, people get sick, but please do your best to keep us informed. And be sure to contact your section chair to find out what you have missed.
