Absence Request Form - Bella Choirs
The Sing Out Loud organization and the choirs of Bella Voce and Bella Fiore (Bella) were created for students who have the desire, energy, dedication, and time to commit to a choir season. Bella meets only once each week, and learns great amounts of quality, often difficult music each season. Bella is successful because of the high level of individual responsibility and dedication and regular rehearsal attendance is a requirement and is a necessity for each member.
With that in mind, it is important for students and families to talk through, set priorities, be realistic and honest when it comes to understanding what being in Bella means for commitment of time and energy. We want each and every one of our students to be successful.
The Bella season consists of Spring and Fall retreats, weekly Sunday rehearsals, dress rehearsals and December and May formal concerts. Attendance is expected at all of these events. The Bella calendar is posted early in the year to ensure that scheduled events can fit into busy family schedules and prevent conflicts with family vacations or outings. Occasionally, a performance is added mid-year and attendance is then highly encouraged. Absences created by the student’s dual participation in other school activities, religious observations, etc. should be presented at the student’s earliest notification. Except for an illness or emergency, we need to have each member present every rehearsal. If the student has laryngitis but feels well, she is encouraged to attend rehearsal in a listening capacity. We ask each member to limit her absences to two per semester.
For anticipated absences, an Absence Request Form should be filled out and submitted at least three weeks prior to the date.
Two absences are allowed per semester. (They are intended for things such as illness, emergencies, weather issues or important family events.) If there are more than two absences within a semester, the student will be subject to hold a make-up audition with their Director and may be subject for suspension from the choir without a tuition refund. Missing a dress rehearsal or concert could impact choir participation. Excessive absenteeism will be reviewed by the Board of Directors to determine the student’s continued membership in Bella.
