The Hudson Community Chorus
HCC Frequently Asked Questions
When are rehearsals?
Rehearsals are held every TUESDAY evening at Christ Church Episcopal , 21 Aurora St, Hudson. Rehearsals begin promptly at 7 p.m. and end at 9 p.m. Since we rehearse only once a week, an efficient use of time is important. Please be seated and ready to warm up at 7 p.m.
How will I know if rehearsal is cancelled?
You will be notified by email or you can check this web site. Make sure we have your current email address, or if you don't use email, please provide your current phone number.
What if I must miss a rehearsal?
Absences affect your ability to learn the music and make it difficult to achieve a balance in parts and sound. Please make every effort to attend if you are well, but if you can't be there, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know. Choral singing creates an environment that can spread germs easily, so please stay home if you are not feeling well. If you will miss several rehearsals, please speak to Nathan prior to the anticipated absences. Whenever you miss a rehearsal, check with a member of your section regarding notes or practice info you might have missed. All rehearsals are recorded and can be accessed through the Chorus Member login link in the upper-right.
What does it cost to join HCC?
Our year is divided into two seasons -- Holiday and Spring . If you pay for each season separately, the fee is $40 payable at the beginning of each season, or you can pay for both the holiday and spring season in September at a cost of $75. Members are asked to support the chorus by supporting the annual fall campaign, selling concert tickets, and assisting on the board or its committees.
How does the chorus dress for concerts?
Women wear ankle length skirts and black tops, black hosiery, and black shoes. The required black top is available by order, once each season through the chorus. Please avoid perfume or scented lotions.
Men wear black tuxedoes, white shirts, black bow ties, and black shoes. Cummerbunds and vests are optional.
All music for the concert must be in a black music folder. Folders are available for purchase online from mymusicfolders.com or at area music stores.
Who owns the music we perform?
The music in your concert packet is owned by HCC or borrowed from other music programs. It is for your use until the concert. You should take care of the music and make all notations in your music in pencil only. All music will be returned to Maria Tazzi, our music librarian, at the end of each concert season.
