A New Season! A message from the President
Welcome back to another year of great music! Both the orchestra and chorus have a wonderful season of concerts planned which I know everybody will enjoy performing.
Both the Chorus and Orchestra will resume rehearsals on Tuesday, September 13th Chorus at Broadmoor Church
Orchestra at South Arm United Church (until we can get back into Palmer)
Fees are an extremely important part of our operating budget and as such everybody who is performing is expected to pay the fee of $200 unless you have previously discussed fees with Cathy Bayley.
Fees will be collected at the first rehearsal for each group. Please come with a cheque for $200 for the whole year, or 2 cheques, one dated September 13th and the other dated January 1, 2017.
In the past, some members have only paid for half a season at a time. Because of the necessity of knowing exactly how much we will be collecting in fees we can no longer accept partial payments, unless you provide a post-dated cheque. Because of the changing membership some people know they will not be performing in all concerts. However, it is still expected that members pay the $200 whether or not they will be performing every concert.
But finally, please remember that we want everybody who wants to perform with ROCA to be able to do so. If you find the fees to be a financial burden, please contact Cathy and other arrangements can be made.
Every performing member must complete a membership application form each year. These can be found at www.roca.ca on the Members’ Page. The password for the Members’ Page is rocaisgr8.
Please complete your membership application BEFORE September 13th.
Have a wonderful end of summer and see you all on September 13th!
