Singer Agreements:

As a member of Portland Choirs, I uphold the integrity of our organization:

-by attending all rehearsals and performances, arriving on time, and staying for the entire duration of scheduled activities;
-by communicating about schedule conflicts in advance;
-by knowing my music thoroughly, practicing independently in addition to regular group rehearsals;
-by keeping my voice in good singing condition, avoiding extraneous shouting;
-by keeping my music organized in a binder and bringing my music binder to every rehearsal;
-by maintaining the condition of my uniform, being well-groomed and neatly dressed for performances and other public appearances;
-by promoting performances in which I'm engaged and encouraging other singers to audition.

In rehearsals and performances, I respect myself and others:

-by allowing each person their own space and refraining from physical contact;
-by empowering the Artistic Director to making programming, casting, and artistic decisions;
-by speaking only when granted permission to do so;
-by refraining from using my cell phone - including texting;
-by practicing kindness at all times, offering support for the growth of others whenever possible;
-by treating the facilities where we meet with care, leaving the space cleaner than before I arrived.

I understand that infractions with these agreements could jeopardize my participation in Portland Choirs without refund.
