Time Commitment

The Choir practices on Mondays and Wednesdays from 6-7 pm in the Abbey Church, and meets at 6:15 on Sunday evening to prepare for the 7 pm Choral Eucharist.

Students are encouraged to take their responsibility to the music and to the group seriously, and to honor the commitment they have made to these time-slots. Choir members are expected to take responsibility for managing conflicts with other activities according to their commitment to the choir, and are asked to keep the Director informed via e-mail about projected or unexpected absences, course conflicts, and lateness. Occasionally members are dropped from the choir roster due to excessive absences and/or lack of personal accountability.

Many students who are in the Choir also participate in the performances of the Abbey Players, and practice/performances for both groups are coordinated so that it is possible to participate in both activities, although not advisable for students who struggle to maintain a 2.0 GPA.
