Always an issue, if people don't show up, how can we be prepared?

Desert Voices (Tucson)

These are the results of a June 2000 discussion of attendance issues compiled by the Membership Committee of Desert Voices.


As an inclusive community chorus, it is important to ensure participation for as many singers as possible. To paraphrase one email, our main thrust should be seeing that people are connected to the chorus and educated on their responsibility to the chorus. As someone from [The Lesbian and Gay Chorus of  Washington], DC said via email, “Singing is a pretty intimate act, and it's hard for me to sing next to someone I barely know [and] who has attended rehearsal intermittently. When put on those terms, people are pretty understanding.”
