Regular rehearsals are Tuesdays and Fridays 2:30-4:30pm in the Lincoln School music room. Students are met at 2pm for snack. For children who miss the second hour of Tuesday rehearsal due to conflicts with Hebrew school, there are mandatory make-up rehearsals on Wednesdays 2:30-3:15pm. There is also one evening rehearsal (6:45-8:15pm) per month, and additional rehearsals are often necessary prior to performances.
Senior PALS performs monthly beginning in October. These performances include the Songs of Hope Concert in the fall, the PALS Family Concert in December, the VOICES concert at Jordan Hall in late-winter, a Performance Series concert in the spring, and an end-of-the-year musical (grades 4,6,8) and play (grades 5,7) in May, among others.
$660 for the school year. Acceptance into PALS is never contingent upon the ability to pay full tuition. There are payment plans and scholarships available.
