Workshops and Weekend Rehearsals
Concert Choir and Chamber Singers have an additional weekend rehearsal once per month.
All performance ensembles have a mid-semester workshop on select weekends in October (Fall Semester) and February/March (Spring Semester). Primes/Prelude, Mezzo/Melody, and Harmony attend for a half-day, and Concert Choir is overnight.
Attendance at all workshops is mandatory as this is our main choreography learning opportunity.
Occasional weekend rehearsal dates are required for all choirs to help prepare for combined performances.
Concert Choir and Chamber Singers have pre-semester workshop in August and January (Sunday prior to start of each semester), as well as additional rehearsals for their summer tour in June.
All performance ensembles perform at major concerts in December and May. Additional rehearsals are scheduled in advance of each major concert.
There are additional performances throughout the season.
- Primes/Prelude Choir – Day trip in April/May (South Florida day destination).
- Mezzo/Melody Choir – Overnight trip to Disney (park and performance or workshop) in April/May.
- Harmony Choir, Concert Choir, and Chamber Singers – Members may individually audition to participate in honor choir festivals put on by the American Choral Directors Association and UNF’s “Jacksonville Sings.” Previously there was an annual summer tour in June/July (national or international, 4 to 8 days).
Extra rehearsals are held in advance of each tour.
