Rehearsals can increase in frequency, especially during tech/performances weeks and in the lead-up to the busy holiday performance season. We expect performers to prepare new music ahead of rehearsals and we provide sheet music and learning tracks to facilitate the various ways performers learn. PSC performs frequently (approx. every 6 weeks) at venues across the Puget Sound region throughout the year, with performance dates/times negotiated beforehand with event organizers and PSC. We recommend that performers maintain flexible schedules during the very busy holiday season. PERFORMANCE HONORARIA PSC maintains high standards for our musical product and professionalism.
