We are looking for part mentors
We are looking to have two mentors for the Sopranos – it is an important role and we want to see it re-established and active. You will find a description of what it involves following and I would very much like to hear from anyone who feels they could help in this area. – you would not be acting alone and would have all the support I could offer.
As a non-auditioning community choir, The Festival Chorus has always welcomed all abilities. In order to ensure that there was a welcome and support for everyone, the Mentor Scheme was set up. To be a part mentor is not onerous, but it is very much something that is best done by a non-committee member.
What is involved?
                          a) Get to know part members. Especially to be available in the first 2 – 3 weeks of each term before the start of the rehearsals to support the Chair and meet, greet and seat new members
                        b) Organise part rehearsals – establishing date and venue. Liaise with Elspeth, if necessary, or organise to use Choraline CDs. Liaise with other mentors and the Chair
                         c) Keep a record of numbers in each part and pass on to Tim. (Important in the final rehearsals).
                         d) Supply semi-chorus/solo suggestions if required.
On the part of the Committee, there would be a commitment to organise at least one meeting each year to air concerns and celebrate successes.
The Festival Chorus will only contact you about choir activities and will not pass your details on to any third party.  If you do not wish to receive further messages from us, please reply to this e-mail writing ‘unsubscribe’ in the subject line.
