Rehearsals normally take place on Monday evenings starting at 7.15pm in the Performance Enhancement Centre at King Arthur's School, Wincanton.
At the Musical Director's discretion we occasionally have sectional rehearsals. You will be given plenty of notice to such changes.
To ensure that the Musical Director's instructions are remembered and acted upon, please bring a soft (B) pencil and rubber with which to annotate the music.
All marks must be erased before returning the music after each concert.
Please note, as well as attending as many rehearsals as possible members are reminded that they must attend the last three rehearsals prior to a concert (i.e. Monday, Friday and Sunday afternoon on the concert day) if they wish to sing in that concert.
