2011 – 2012 KNIGHTS TEMPLAR & MADRIGAL CHOIR CONTRACT
Congratulations and welcome to the Knights Templar and/or Madrigal Choir! I am absolutely thrilled to work with you this year. I hope the repertoire that we rehearse and perform in these groups will challenge you, inspire you, and help you to develop as both a musician and a singer. The Knights Templar and Madrigal Choir have the potential to be superb. However, attaining that level of musicianship requires your consistent commitment, dedication, and enthusiasm. The product, attitude, and musical ability of these ensembles depend entirely on you! As your director, I have high expectations for each and every one of you. Please understand that it is a privilege, not a right, to be a member of these performing ensembles. What I expect of you: 1. You arrive to rehearsal on time. This means that you are ready to sing when rehearsal starts, not walking through the door. 2. You do not eat or drink in the choir room except for water. Dinners, snacks, etc. must be consumed before you walk in the door, even if you are coming from another commitment. 3. You are focused and always positively contributing during rehearsal. This means no cell phone usage, homework, or off-topic talking. 4. You maintain a positive attitude and enjoy the music making process! 5. You attend all rehearsals and performances. 6. You treat your fellow choir members and director with respect. What you can expect of me: 1. I will start and end rehearsals on time. I understand that your time is limited and precious! 2. I will maintain a positive attitude and do my best to make rehearsals fun! 3. I will look for various performance opportunities for the Knights Templar and Madrigal Choir. 4. I will treat each of you with the respect that you deserve, and welcome your musical input. You are required to attend all rehearsals, dress rehearsals, and performances. You are permitted two absences before you will be dismissed from the choir. Consistent attendance from all members is essential to our success as a choral ensemble. If there is an emergency or some unavoidable conflict for a rehearsal you must see me as soon in advance as possible. I have provided a detailed rehearsal and performance schedule for both ensembles on the following page. Please put this schedule somewhere visible, and mark the dates on your calendar as to avoid any conflicts. Please also sign and date the attached contract and return by Monday, September 12, 2011. I look forward to making music with all of you! Sincerely,

Ms. D’Achille
