Concert Attendance Policy Anticipated absences must be communicated via email in September to be excused. Any missed performance requires completion of a make-up project, however, unexcused absences cannot be made up.
Students are graded on the following regular assessments
Vocal tests - recorded and submitted on Classroom
Students are also assessed on their class musicianship throughout the term. Musicianship refers to observable class behaviors.
Preparation: folder, laptop, pencil, sheet music, etc.
Bella Voce, Chorus and Chorale require a full length black gown. Stage Accents is a company you may use to order a dress, and there are two from which to choose. Some students prefer to cover their shoulders, and that is an option you will see listed. If ordering from Stage Accents, please do so ASAP to ensure time for delivery as well as any alterations that may be required.
Bella Voce travels with the Music Department every other year to a regional destination, and every fourth year embarks on an international tour. We recently toured Rome and Florence. In the Spring of 2018 we travel to Prague in the Czech Republic. A trip meeting is planned for Tuesday September 10, at 6:30 PM in the Cafeteria Expansion. Please attend!
