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.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org or calling/texting 970-985-5898. 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.
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
