Remedy for evening performace conflicts
Date: May 8, 2014
After thirteen years in a small rural school, I have come to realize that conficts with evening performances are not unique to my school but maybe avoidable. I am thinking about having all of my public performaces during the school day. My school has a thirty-five minute time slot for tutoring, class meetings, etc. I used this time to rehearse a select ensemble but still ran into biology boot camp, remediation, algrebra boot camp etc. This time slot is right before my HS choir period. I am thinking of giving parents plenty of advanced notice of the concerts. This daytime perormance would eliminate conflicts and problems such as; transportation issues, work, other school activities, sports, family obligations, high gas prices...etc.
Anyone else out there doing this or have tried it? Let me know.
