Camerata

Auditions--often held in May-- vocal and musical expectations, and the next season's schedule are announced well in advance by the music director.

Rehearsals
Rehearsals are usually held at the Allen Avenue Unitarian Universalist Church, 524 Allen Avenue, Portland, on Monday evenings from 7:30 to 9:30. A typical season begins after Labor Day and runs through Memorial Day.

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.

Memberships Dues

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.
