All Keene Chorale regular rehearsals will take place at the Keene Ice Arena Blastos Room unless otherwise indicated. Singers must be fully vaccinated, and boostered when eligible, and bring a paper or virtual vaccination record to the first rehearsal each semester. The Chorale may, if conditions warrant, require singers to wear a mask during the semester, and/or for the performance. For our Spring 2023 semester we will be monitoring the latest CDC and local guidelines so we can sing safely.

OTHER USEFUL INFORMATION
Each semester we have a 4-hour rehearsal on Saturday, about a month before the performance. We break for lunch halfway through. We bring our own lunch and drinks but encourage singers to bring cookies or fruit to share.
Men ~ black trousers, long sleeved black shirts, black shoes and socks.
Women ~ black bottoms (slacks or skirts — at least below the knee), black shirts or blouses, black hose and shoes. Women may wear jewelry.
No cologne, perfume, aftershave, or heavily scented hair spray.
Black music folders.
Singers are expected to attend all rehearsals for the full rehearsal time. We strongly advise missing as few rehearsals as possible. However, if an absence is unavoidable, singers should inform their section leader ahead of time. This will allow Section leaders to update absentees about any markings/instructions from the director. If a singer misses more than three rehearsals, participation in the concert will be at the discretion of the Director.
Out of respect for your fellow singers, we ask that you refrain from wearing cologne, perfume, aftershave, or hair spray at rehearsals and concerts.
Winter Weather Policy
If the weather forecast is for snow, sleet, or freezing rain on rehearsal night, we will send out an email by 3:00 – 4:00 pm if rehearsal will be cancelled. We will use the email addresses provided at registration.
