Rehearsal Schedule

2002 Members Recital--RCFC #1ATTENDANCE POLICIES:

Rose City Flute Choir (RCFC) is an adult volunteer organization. As adults, we need to all be responsible for attending as many rehearsals as humanly possible–at least 70%.   Remember, EVERYONE plays an important role in RCFC and it’s important that all parts are covered & balanced at rehearsals.   Attendance is important to the continuing quality of the group and is required at a minimum of two of the last three rehearsals prior to a performance.  See Policies & Information

***REMINDER: Please avoid wearing or reapplying perfumes and scented cosmetics before rehearsals and performances—several members are allergic or sensitive to scents.

If you must miss a rehearsal or concert, please call Phyllis at 503-579-6987 (voice only) or email at palouke@comcast.net, as soon as you know of the conflict. 

Rehearsals: Rehearsals are held on Thursday evenings from 7:00-9:00pm.  Bring your instrument and a music stand.

All family members accompanying you will need to pay for admission and enter at the front gate (we will be distributing discount coupons).
Parking: Park in performers lot on NE 85th (about 1/4-1/2 mile south of Sandy). Ask the parking attendant to direct you where musicians go, if this is your first time at the Grotto (or carpool with someone who has been there before). If you bring along family, have them drop you off at the Performer’s Lot, and then park in the visitors lot, near the front entrance.
To get to Warm-Up Room: After parking, there is a building to the right as you enter the musicians lot. You’ll see an exterior staircase. Go up the stairs (or take the elevator, which is to the right of the staircase) and enter the glass doors (should be a sign to the warm-up room–it’s down the hall on the left).

 

For informal concerts and summer performances, the group wears white polo shirts embroidered with RCFC’s logo. Price is $30.
