All Newhaven College choirs, ensembles and bands work towards the highest performance standards, at the same time as providing parts that cater for a wide range of skill levels.
Selected groups may be invited to perform at College soirees, assemblies, our Annual Bands Night and other school and community events.
Attendance at the annual four-day Music Camp and at our Spring Concert is an expectation for most groups. Some ensembles will be invited to participate in a smaller two-day program.
Students must commit to learning their parts outside of rehearsal time.
Once an application has been approved, your child will be considered an ongoing member of the ensemble for the year.
Where a student seems consistently unprepared at rehearsals - through lack of practice, inconsistent attendance or failure to bring the required materials - they may be given a one-term probation in which to demonstrate an improved commitment level. Failure to do so may result in a loss of their place in the group.
Advice of withdrawal from a choir/ensemble/band must be made in writing to firstname.lastname@example.org.
