Scholarships

We may have some funds allocated for scholarships.  If you need financial assistance, please fill out a scholarship application at the first rehearsal and your child will be considered for a PARTIAL scholarship.  This is usually in the amount of $50 toward your child’s fees but this amount varies depending on donations.  You will still be expected to provide a payment at the first rehearsal and if selected, we will apply the scholarship to your second payment.

Rehearsals:

Being on time to rehearsal means being checked in, having music in order in your 3 ring binder, bringing a pencil and being in place by 6:30 p.m. Rehearsals are generally on Thursday evenings from 6:30-7:45pm at Redlands Middle School. There may be a few Monday rehearsals because of building conflicts. Please see the Calendar of Events  page for the complete schedule. Your child must wear his or her GVCC t-shirt to every rehearsal.  If your child loses or outgrows his or her t-shirt, you must purchase a new shirt for $10.00.  This is a safety issue.

The expectation is that children will attend all rehearsals unless they are ill or have a school music program. Please contact a director by 6:15 the night of rehearsal if your child will not be in attendance.  You can do this by emailing us at gvcchoir@gmail.com or calling/texting 970-549-7009.  Please stay in touch. Missing more than two rehearsals can seriously affect your child’s readiness for a concert and may affect whether your child will be allowed to perform.

Dress Rehearsals:

It is mandatory that all GVCC members attend the dress rehearsal before each concert. If your singer misses a dress rehearsal, he or she will not be allowed to sing in the
concert.
