If you miss three or more rehearsals (whether or not they
are excused), you will need to re-audition with Bill so he can make
sure you're learning the music to continue in choir. We will keep track

Three or more tardies will result in expulsion from the choir. Leaving rehearsal early without notifying Bill or your section leader will also result in expulsion from the choir.
Sectionals are mandatory, so that we can learn the notes
before coming to rehearsal where we want to focus on making music, so
talk with Bill to work something out if you have a conflict.
