What type of time commitment does Phenom require?
Phenom is constructed to operate with a minimal impact on your ‘normal summer’ schedule while still fostering an educationally based environment for you to succeed as a performer in the pageantry arts. There is still the very important need to make sure you are fully able to commit to all of the Phenom summer schedule before you sign your membership contract.
The 2020 Phenom daily schedule will be 12 hours in length and follow this breakdown:
9:00am - 12:00pm - Rehearse
12:00pm - 1:00pm - Meal Break
1:00pm - 4:00pm - Rehearse
4:00pm - 5:00pm - Meal Break
5:00pm - 9:00pm - Rehearse
The time commitment with the ensemble is very important, and your attendance is required for each and every rehearsal. You will be expected to come fully prepared mentally, musically, and physically.
**If you miss more than 3 rehearsals without approval from the Director your contract will become under review and you may be removed from the ensemble at the Directors discretion**
If I get a membership contract, how much will I have to pay?
Phenom is constantly striving to be one of the most affordable summer music performance opportunities in Arizona.
The following will outline what it will cost to be a member of Phenom in 2020:
2020 Audition/Registration Fee: Free!
2020 Membership and Tour Fee: $850
There may be additional costs for you personally this season with Phenom.
Some factors to consider could include things such as:
Cost of gas for travel to and from rehearsals (We encourage you to carpool with other members)
Cost of meals on food breaks (Bring a cooler lunch to keep costs low)
Any repair fees that are required if damage is made to an instrument issued to you by Phenom
