Attendance Policy
A rehearsal schedule is published well in advance. Members must attend at least 80% of regular rehearsals in order to sing in the concerts. Three tardy arrivals or early departures equal one absence. Attendance is mandatory at final rehearsals.

All members of The Choral Art Society pay dues. The revenue from annual dues helps the organization produce and present exceptional musical experiences. Members of CAS are entitled to vote at the CAS Annual Meeting, and they receive all CAS correspondence. Anyone for whom dues payment presents a hardship may speak to the CAS President or Manager for other arrangements.
Masterworks $50;  Singers $100; Camerata $35

A non-profit arts organization can only function with a membership that contributes its skill and time. Many volunteer opportunities are available - Logistics, Costume, Finance and Development, Marketing, Operations and Planning and Evaluation.
