I have heard that we shouldn’t wear perfume or cologne or scented hair spray for concerts.  Why is that?

Many people are allergic or sensitive to perfumes, making them cough and sneeze or causing difficulty breathing.  Especially during concerts we all want to be able to breathe as well as possible.

What do I do if I have to miss a rehearsal?

You should contact your section leader and Dr. Nickerson, either by phone or by email, at least a couple hours before the rehearsal.  his helps Richard plan our rehearsals. 

What time are rehearsals and where?

Rehearsals are Thursday evening, 6:45 to 9:00 pm, at the High Street Congregational Church, 106 Pleasant St, Auburn.  See your printed rehearsal schedule for details.

Occasionally we will have an extra rehearsal on a different day or evening. Rick will announce that time and location.
