What to Bring to Rehearsal

Pencil–Singers should bring a sharpened pencil to every rehearsal.
Chewing gum, food or carbonated beverages are not allowed during rehearsals. Please avoid consuming chocolate or milk products prior to rehearsals.
The chorister’s music binder is the link between choir and home. Parents are responsible to check this binder weekly for important choir notices regarding rehearsals, concerts, meetings, performances, etc.
The music, music binders and any music books provided for each chorister are the property of the FCCC and must be returned in good condition.
A fee will be charged for music, binders or books not returned or returned in poor condition.
Each child is responsible for learning the music for each concert.
Full attention and best behavior is expected at all times.
Talking during rehearsals is neither appropriate nor acceptable.
Members of the FCCC must always remember that we are guests of Fairfield Woods Middle School (FWMS) and as such we must respect the facility, equipment and grounds at all times.
FCCC members should enter and exit the building at the side gymnasium door and go directly to the assigned rehearsal room.
Any misuse of FWMS property will result in dismissal from the FCCC.
