We have a professional sound. Our professionalism is completed by LOOKING professional. Our audience deserves our best effort
Be on the risers ready to sing at the designated call time - come warmed up.
The performance starts as we line up to go on stage, and all the time until we return backstage.
During the pre-performance line up process - do not talk and wait for instructions from the Conductor.
Music must be in a black folder. When entering and leaving the stage, the folder is held down by your side and always facing the audience.
On stage be comfortable, focused and ENGAGED. You know the music so look confident, not concerned.
NO talking at any time when in the public's view. Concentrate your full attention on the Conductor.
Your music will stay by your side until you receive the signal from the Conductor. Have your first page of singing tabbed so you can go to it easily.
When we are not singing, CLIP your music pages with paper clips. Do NOT 'follow along'. Immediately turn to the next section. Stay still. Look up and be a part of the audience. Do not move. Enjoy the other performers.
Quiet page turning is a MUST - a quiet page turn is the sign of an attentive choral singer.
At the end of a movement - eyes front to the Conductor and do not move or turn the page until the movement is completely over and the orchestra/soloists have finished.
At the end of the performance close you music and return it to your audience facing side.
Remember to bring "treats" for the reception if applicable.
