Auditions will be held at Central Christian Church from 5p-6:30p. Central Christian church is located at 3131 West Ave J in Lancaster (on the corner of Ave J & 32nd Street West).
Because of liability issues, it is MANDATORY for parents (or designated-in-writing guardians) to sign each singer IN at the beginning of rehearsals and OUT at the end of rehearsals. YOU MAY NOT DROP OFF OR PICK UP IN THE PARKING LOT. Parents must complete a form listing who is allowed to drop off and pick up each singer. Parents also have to sign a consent form allowing singers who drive to transport themselves and sign themselves in/out. Again, insurance and liability issues make this a mandatory procedure. Parents who do not follow procedure put their child's participation in the AVCC at risk. One more time--YOU MAY NOT DROP OFF OR PICK UP IN THE PARKING LOT, AND THIS GOES FOR SINGERS IN ALL CHOIR LEVELS, INCLUDING YOUTH CHORALE.
**The AVCC provides musical and vocal training in a professional performance environment. Choir members, and therefore, choir families, can expect a time commitment of no less than 3 hours per week during the regular rehearsal schedule, which would include attending regular weekly rehearsals and practicing their music at home. Performances and competitions will require extra rehearsal time and practice. Singer participation in concerts and performances is NOT voluntary. All singers are expected to participate. All singers are expected to follow AVCC guidelines regarding participation, uniforms and behavior. The AVCC is a non-profit organization; parent involvement is VITAL to the success of your child's experience. AVCC families are expected to volunteer time and participate in all choir fundraisers, including events designed to help AVCC families pay various AVCC fees. All choir policies and guidelines can be found in the Parent's Handbook.
ALL FAMILIES ARE REQUIRED TO RAISE A MINIMUM OF $100 IN ANY COMBINATION OF CHOIR PATRONS AND ADVERTISERS FOR THE CHOIR YEAR! Patrons are listed on the web site and in choir publications, such as the Yearbook and Concert Programs. Advertisers have the option of running ads in the Yearbook and/or the winter and spring concert programs. Forms will be handed out at rehearsals. Forms can also be found on the Current Fundraisers page of this web site. Copy and print forms as needed.
