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, 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.

NEW REHEARSAL LOCATION (as of September 2017):

Westside United Methodist Church, 13420 SW Butner Road, Beaverton.  The church is located just south of Hwy 26, just a few blocks east of Murray Blvd.

REHEARSAL ROOM (as of January 2018):
Most weeks, we’ll be rehearsing in the new building–first building on the right coming from the parking lot. 

Occasionally, we’ll be rehearsing in a room in the main building (next building down the path) in the “Family Room”:  Enter main building, turn right at the first hallway.  We’ll be in the large room at the end of the hall.

The dates we’re in the Family Room are marked in the schedule.
