Each season consists of only ten (10) weekly rehearsals. This makes every rehearsal invaluable. In addition, every singer contributes something unique and vital to the chorus, without which the chorus is not the same. We expect that each singer will make every attempt to attend every rehearsal. We understand that life happens, and therefore absences are a part of life. But BYC must be a high priority for every singer. You will receive a detailed rehearsal/performance schedule before the season begins. We will also strive to give you plenty of notice before additional rehearsals or special appearances not yet listed on the season schedule. If you have a conflict with any of BYC's scheduled commitments, please notify berksyouthchorus@gmail.com as early as possible. If we do not receive reasonable and adequate notice before an absence, the absence is unexcused. Singers are only allowed up to ONE (1) unexcused absence per season. If a singer accrues more than ONE (1) unexcused absence, or an excessive number of excused absences, that will bring about a conversation with the Director about appropriate next steps.
*
I understand that my singer is expected to attend the entirety of each rehearsal of the season. I understand that it is my responsibility to ensure that my singer arrives promptly to rehearsal, and is picked up at the end of their rehearsal time. If I cannot ensure the singer's prompt dropoff and pickup, I must reach out to Berks Youth Chorus to notify them of our tardiness. Someone is only authorized to pick up or drop off my singer from a BYC rehearsal, concert or other event if I have listed them here as a parent/guardian or additional pickup/dropoff/emergency contact.
*
In order to coordinate transportation to and from rehearsals, I agree to share my physical address in the BYC Singer Directory, only visible to BYC families.
*
The music given to singers during rehearsals is the property of Berks Youth Chorus. All music must be returned in good condition (minimal tears and creases, markings in pencils NOT pens, etc.) at the end of the season.

Berks Youth Chorus is committed first and foremost to the safety and wellbeing of our singers and their families. We will continue to monitor the pandemic closely and update our precautions as the situation changes. BYC Chorale and Mastersingers have returned to in-person activities for the 2021-22 Fall Season. However, we enforce distancing of at least 4 feet and universal mask wearing by staff, singers and volunteers. We have purchased singer-friendly masks, with medical-grade filters, as well as good construction that keeps the mask off of the mouth for ease of breathing and articulation while singing. Each singer is welcome to have a BYC-owned mask to themselves for the duration of a season. Our large rehearsal spaces allow adequate room for social distancing. We also use a HEPA air filter to ensure greater air quality. BYC All Stars are remaining virtual this year. However, we plan to incorporate All Stars in optional in-person activities each season, even though their programming is predominantly online. We appreciate your compliance, patience and commitment to the health and wellbeing of every family of Berks Youth Chorus. If you have any questions or concerns about these precautions and policies, please do not hesitate to email us at berksyouthchorus@gmail.com.

I understand that this agreement constitutes permission to use rehearsal, press, and production photos of my singer for general distribution. I hereby grant Berks Youth Chorus all rights to use, reproduce, photograph, record, and otherwise disseminate any aspect of my singer’s performance and participation, it being understood that no compensation be made for this use. This agreement constitutes permission to use my family’s email addresses for BYC communication and marketing purposes, including, but not limited to, email newsletters. I further agree that my singer will appear at, and faithfully cooperate in, all publicity or promotional events scheduled by Berks Youth Chorus including television, radio, newspaper, and public appearances. This publicity and marketing agreement is made by the parent/guardian of the singer, a minor and his or her estate.

In consideration of the opportunity for their minor child to receive the educational and musical benefits of BYC's membership, Parents and legal guardians (referred to collectively as "Guardians") agree as follows: The minor child may participate in all BYC rehearsals, performances, tours and other BYC events, and GUARDIANS hereby authorize BYC and its staff and Directors to involve said minor in such rehearsals, performances, tours and events. GUARDIANS agree that said minor will be under the control and authority of such BYC Officers, staff and Directors, and that such Officers, staff and Directors may exercise parental supervision over the child. This constitutes an assignment of temporary guardianship, and Directors may exercise control and make all decisions thereunto pertaining. GUARDIANS further agree that they will, at all times, hereafter indemnify and save harmless BYC and its Officers, Directors, staff, parents, members and volunteers, both individually and in their capacity as such Officers, Directors, staff, parents, members and volunteers, and/or any other organization under whose auspices or in whose premises the minor may rehearse or perform and/or individual and/or organization providing transportation for said minor, from and against all claims, suits, damages, costs, losses, and expenses in any manner resulting from or arising out of said minor’s participation in such rehearsals, performances, and/or tours. It is understood that any medical, hospital, and surgical expenses, incurred as a result of treatment recommended, shall be borne by such GUARDIANS and, to the extent that such expenses may first be paid by BYC, GUARDIANS agree to reimburse it for such expenditures. GUARDIANS acknowledge that participating in BYC rehearsals, activities, performances and other events may include a possible exposure to a communicable disease including but not limited to MRSA, influenza, and COVID-19. GUARDIANS further acknowledge that they are aware of the risks associated with COVID-19 and that certain vulnerable individuals may have greater health risks associated with exposure to COVID-19. While particular recommendations and personal discipline may reduce the risks associated with participating in athletics during the COVID-19 pandemic, the risk of serious illness, medical complications, and possible death does exist. GUARDIANS knowingly and freely assume all such risks, both known and unknown, even if arising from the negligence of others, and assume full responsibility for Student’s participation in BYC rehearsals, activities, performances and other events during the COVID-19 pandemic. GUARIDANS willingly agree to comply with the stated recommendations put forth by the Berks Youth Chorus to limit the exposure and spread of COVID-19 and other communicable diseases. We certify that the minor child is in good physical condition or believe the minor child to be in good physical condition and allow participation in these events at our own risk. In consideration of the amount of time spent in rehearsals, performances, and/or tours, GUARDIANS also agree that emergency medical, including surgical treatments, may be authorized by said Officers, Directors and staff on GUARDIANS’ behalf when he/she cannot be immediately contacted. This agreement shall be binding upon my/our heirs, successors, administrators and assigns. By printing the Guardian's name above, the Guardian signs this binding agreement.
