Schedule

Choral Union community members must attend at least 12 of the 13 rehearsals, including the final rehearsal at First Baptist Church. Failure to do so will result in one not performing in the concert. The final rehearsal must not be the one you miss if you need to miss a rehearsal.

All rehearsals - unless otherwise noted - will be held at Feasel Reherasal Hall in McMahan Hall on Stetson University's DeLand Campus. McMahan Hall is located at the corner of Woodland Boulevard and Michigan Avenue. Rehearsals will run from 7:15 to 9:15 p.m., unless otherwise noted.

Dues and Fees

Singers from the community are asked to pay $10 in dues per season. These funds will be placed in an agency fund at Stetson University and shall be used at the conductor's discretion to develop the ensemble. Example expenditures may include hiring instrumentalists or soloists and providing social events.

Registered students of Stetson University do not pay the dues whether or not they are registered for Choral Union. If a student is taking any courses at Stetson University, they do not pay dues.

Please see the payments section below for information on paying for printed music.

Payments

Thank you for paying online for your expenses. Please follow the instructions closely. There are two links below. In order to ensure that payments go into the proper account, please closely read each link and use the one that applies to you:

You can still pay for any and all expenses in person at the School of Music with either cash or a check made payable to "Stetson University."

Repertoire

The Spring 2016 Choral Union Repertoire will be available for purchase at the first rehearsal (see schedule above). The price will be $10 per singer. Those who already own the 1986 Hinshaw vocal score of Rutter's Requiem may use their own score and will not need to purchase a new one, but the conductor recommends you buy a clean score if you have many markings in your score. Every singer must have an original, published copy for all rehearsals and performances. (For a community member, the total semester fee would be $10 dues plus $10 music purchase = total $20.) For registered Stetson students the only fee is the $10 music purchase. 

Score Markings and Rehearsal Recordings

Score Markings

Score markings will be sent out via e-mail. Make sure the managers have a current email address from you.

Rehearsal Recordings

Copyright laws prohibit the posting of any rehearsal recordings here for Rutter's Requiem.
