With an ensemble such as Alabama Winds, rehearsing only once each month, the most critical component for the success of the ensemble is having all members present at every rehearsal. As such, all members of Alabama Winds are expected to be present at all rehearsals. Missing one rehearsal equates to missing one-fourth of the rehearsal time for each concert. The rehearsal dates and concert dates have been announced so please make sure now that your schedule is clear of conflicts. If a situation arises where a member will not be able to attend a rehearsal, the member will email the Director of Personnel, Heath Nails at hnails@alabamawinds.org. Each situation will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis.
