Voices is a high-quality choral group that performs a number of times during the year. As a result, there is a large number of selections to learn. With rehearsals limited to Monday nights, it is very important that each member take it upon him/herself to spend time on their own, during the week, to learn the music that is to be performed.
The director sends out weekly e-mails for the upcoming rehearsal including information such as:
- Notes from the previous rehearsal
- Reminders of trouble spots to practice during the week
- A detailed schedule of the next rehearsal
- Weather related changes
Additionally, assistance is available for those who need extra help and time by contacting the section leaders.
