Welcome to the Langley Community Chorus(updated Sep 04/13)
Here is the information youíll need as a chorus member as well as the official definition of a member-in-good-standing.
Rehearsals are at 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday evenings at the Langley Community Music School, 4899 Ė 207th Street. As a courtesy to other members and to our Music Director, please be punctual as it is important to participate in the warm-up. Please turn off beepers and cell phone ring tones. Please care for your voice by bringing water to drink. Once a month at the break we enjoy light refreshments provided by one or more sections.
The membership fee twice a year (Sept. and January) is $70.00. $35.00 is non-refundable if a member decides to leave within the first month. No refunds are made after the first month. Fees are due before the start of the 2nd rehearsal of each season, and include the cost of practice media which will be available to you upon payment of your membership fee. If paying by cash, please give exact change.
Sheet music will be distributed only after the chorus receives membership fees as well as a $50.00 post-dated music deposit. If the music is returned by the due date, your deposit will not be cashed. All music is the property of the Chorus and is returned at the end of the season. Please bring a pencil for marking music as the music deposit will be forfeited if ink or highlighters are used.
Purchase / rental of concert dress:
WOMEN wear their concert blouse (custom-made for $25.00), with long black skirt or dress pants, black hose/socks and shoes and minimal jewelry.
As a special note, please avoid wearing fragrance when at rehearsals and performances.
A member-in-good-standing: has no outstanding debt to the chorus, pays fees and deposits when due, attends sufficient rehearsals to prepare for and participate in concerts, addresses all concerns and/or suggestions to members of the board, communicates in advance to the section helper or Membership person for any missed rehearsals. While unexpected conflicts are understandable, a member loses good standing when no communication is made prior to a missed concert performances or 3 consecutive rehearsals.
If you are unable to attend a Chorus performance, please inform both the Music Director and your section helper or Membership person.
Please feel free to contact (email, phone, in person) the President or any board member (NOT the Music Director) to pass along information, suggestions or concerns.
