Our commitment to our choristers
We will not sell, share or trade our choristers’ names or personal information with any other entity, or make choristers’ details available to other choristers without their permission.
This policy applies to all information received by the Radio Community Chest Inc, both online and offline, on any platform (“platform” includes the Radio Community Chest Inc Website and mobile applications), as well as any electronic, written, or oral communications.
To the extent payments (for example, registration fees) are processed through a third-party service provider, our choristers’ information will only be used for purposes necessary to process the payment.
1. Weekly rehearsals begin Monday 14 October, 2019 at St Stephen’s Church Macquarie Street 7:00 pm to 8:45 pm. Please come as early as possible the first week if you have not already registered online and paid. The church will be open from 6:00 pm that week and 6:30 pm in subsequent weeks. Come in good time every week so that you are in your seat and ready to sing at 7:00 pm.
A rehearsal will also be held at the Sydney Town Hall on a date and at a time to be announced.
All choristers are expected to have their own copy of the score (Prout Edition preferred). Copies can be purchased at the first and second rehearsals.
Choristers are required to attend all or almost all practices to qualify to participate in the performances on 14th and 15th December at 3.00pm in the Sydney Town Hall. Our Conductor this year will again be Tim Chung with Peter Kneeshaw AM at the organ.
