YOU MAY NOT MISS ANY PART OF ANY REHEARSAL HELD DURING THE PERFORMANCE WEEKEND!
The participation and housing fees must be paid directly to the NJMEA Office, either by credit card, check, or PO by August 1, 2018. If the fee is not paid, you may not attend the September rehearsal until it is paid, and this will count as your one and only absence. If the fees are not paid by September 15, 2018 you will not be able to participate in NJ All-State Chorus. Also, there will be no refunds after September 15, 2018.
You are allowed ONE absence. An absence is defined as missing a rehearsal OR ANY PART THEREOF; therefore you are not allowed to be late or to leave early. After the second absence, you will no longer be a member of the ensemble, nor will you be eligible to audition for All-State Chorus in the future. You must perform at BOTH CONCERTS in order to receive your all-state pin and to maintain eligibility for the following year.
