The West Shore Chorale will not be requiring proof of vaccination for membership or require masking during rehearsals unless the rehearsal or performance venue requires us to do so. Members who wish to wear a mask may do so.
Rehearsal attendance is very important in the West Shore Chorale. The Chorale has a policy of no more than two excused absences per half-year. Exceptions to that can be made by the director.
Rehearsals are held Tuesdays at 7:30 p.m. at the Municipal Center in Rocky River, at the corner of Hilliard and Wagar Roads. The first rehearsal of the season is the first Tuesday after Labor Day. The second half of the season begins the first Tuesday after New Year’s Day.
Dress rehearsals are held on the Saturday prior to a Sunday concert. Unless otherwise announced, the rehearsal is from 9:30 AM to Noon. (Uniform is not required for this rehearsal.) Rehearsals often end before noon. For other concerts, the dress rehearsal time will be announced.
Snow (or another disaster) Policy
A procedure when we have bad weather or other circumstances
- A decision to have rehearsal or not have rehearsal will be made at 6:00 p.m. after the president and the director have consulted and after gathering all the information available.
- An email will be sent immediately to everyone who has given us an email address (if computer access is available)
- A message will be put on the website members section (if computer access is available)
- If you cannot access that information, call the director or president.
If we decide to have rehearsal and you feel uncomfortable about driving, do not come to rehearsal. Your absence will not be recorded for that rehearsal.
Concert Dress Policy
Concert participants will wear either a black tuxedo or a formal black, floor-length dress/ensemble.
