The following information applies to members of every ensemble under the umbrella of HV CAMP. Please be sure to read carefully.
Examples of what is musically expected of members include the following:
All members (new and returning) are expected to register prior to each season of participation for legal purposes. Payment is done online following registration. Please use the Register link under the "How To Join" menu at the top of the page.
The cutoff to join an ensemble for a particular season is before the fifth rehearsal or the halfway point of the season, whichever occurs first. Following that point, anyone who wishes to join a particular ensemble must audition with the musical director with consultation from the executive director.
Music and folders are the property of HV CAMP. Please make any markings lightly and in pencil for easy erasing. Lost, stolen, or damaged property will require compensation from members.
MUSIC DEPOSIT POLICY:
Each member that returns his/her music and folder, all in good condition (defined as nothing more than normal wear and tear plus erased pencil markings), following each season is entitled to a $5 refund. A member may elect to have that $5 roll over to the next season for the same ensemble and be used for the same deposit. (Example: a member cannot roll over the $5 from the Spring season of the Pops to be used for the Summer season of a jazz band. A member can roll over the $5 from the Spring season of the Pops to the Fall season of the Pops.)
A member who chooses to roll over the $5 is not entitled to ask for it back for any reason except following the successful return of his/her music and folder in the following applicable season. The deposit is considered lost in all other situations and/or discrepancies.
The musical director of each ensemble will make the final determination on the condition of music/folders. Any discrepancy over the condition of music/folder will be decided by the executive director. Members are not entitled to appeal any decision, as all decisions are final.
Members will be contacted via email within a few weeks following the final concert of each season regarding their deposit. Members are asked to respond within a week of being contacted with their preference.
A $15 audition fee will be assessed for all new members to ensure the importance of the seating audition process. (Thus, new members must pay a total of $45 before their audition: $25 dues, $5 music deposit fee, and $15 audition fee.)
New members will receive $10 of this fee back at the end of the season if they complete the following:
