Requirements for performing in A Secret Rose:

  1. It is necessary to be a competent guitarist with at least a rudimentary comprehension of standard musical notation.  Basic music reading is necessary to be able to perform A Secret Rose.  All musicians participating in A Secret Rose will be assigned to one of three sections, each of which will have their parts provided in written notation and textual instructions, and explained by section leaders.
  2. You must be able to commit to attending all rehearsals in full, 2 days total.
    • The first rehearsals will be held at the East Bay Center for the Performing Arts (Richmond, CA), tentatively scheduled for Friday November 15, 2013 from 10 AM - 4 PM.
    • The second rehearsal will be held at the Craneway Pavilion (Richmond, CA) on Saturday November 16, 2013 - exact schedule to be announced.
  3. You must be able to commit to attending a day-long rehearsal/soundcheck and (obviously) the performance on Sunday November 17, 2013 at the Craneway Pavilion (Richmond, CA). The approximate performance time for A Secret Rose is 7:00 PM. There will be set up, final rehearsal and soundcheck prior to the performance time, hence the full day commitment.
