Question about your procedures for getting a sub for your adult church choir
Date: May 11, 2011
I am hoping to get some information from those of you who direct an adult church and have a separate accompanist. When your accompanist needs to get a sub for a rehearsal, what are your procedures?
Specifically I am wondering how far in advance does your accompanist let you know of the absence and does he/she have to fill out an absence request form? How many absences from rehearsals is he/she allowed? Are some of those absences paid and others unpaid? Is there a separate budget for sub accompanists, does the pay for the sub come out of the accompanist's salary, or is there a mix of both? For those in the Philadelphia area, how much does your church pay the subs? I know AGO has guidelines, but there is a wide range on those guidelines.
Thank you so much for your information! I always find great information and wisdom from the Choralnet community.
