Concerts and Festivals
Participation in Concerts and festivals is essential. Students must let Dr. Morton know if they are missing an event ahead of time, preferably in the online choir commitment form. An absence must be excused in advanced or at the discretion of Dr. Morton in the event of an unforeseen emergency or illness. If excused, then the student may do the make up assignment to have the 0 replaced by an E in their grade. The grade will then be averaged without those points in it.
Make-up for concert or festival: By yourself, record all of what you would have sung at the event. You may omit any long periods of silence. Save the recording(s) in compressed form (preferably MP3). If multiple files, then either 1) zip them together in compressed folder and put it in the drop box for the missing assignment, or alternatively, 2) put the first recording in the drop box and email subsequent ones to Dr. Morton. (Or, get them to him any way you can.)
