Things you should know: 

1. We value the commitment you and your student make to Esprit, so not missing any rehearsals is important. We understand that life is busy, but also know that Esprit is a much richer experience the more that you attend rehearsals. Please read and check all dates of the rehearsal/tour schedule (listed in the Conflict/Schedule form). Once you indicate the dates that you can attend rehearsals and those dates that are potential conflicts, please reference the email you will receive after submitting the Conflict/Schedule form as a reminder of your commitment.

2. New applicants will need to go through a short interview and audition process. There is no need to prepare anything ahead of time, Carey will provide instructions at the audition. Please choose your audition date on the Conflict/Schedule form and mark your calendar. We will contact you via email with your audition time.

3. Esprit is a ministry of Lincoln Berean Church, but more importantly, we represent Christ to the world. We place a high value on behavior of our members. Please know that you will be asked to comply with our expectations should you be accepted. We understand that we have kids from many different backgrounds, but by applying for Esprit you are agreeing to behave in a manner that honors God and respects the values and commitment of Lincoln Berean Church.

4. We often communicate through text, email (parents), social media, postcards and mailings to communicate with you. Please watch for these and read them.

5. Should you be accepted to join Esprit 2020, there is a fee to participate. Lincoln Berean Church graciously covers many of our expenses, but we do ask each participant to pay $300 toward travel expenses. You will also be responsible for your lunchtime meal each day on tour. Feel free to reach out to us with questions/concerns, we don’t want the expense of being a part of Esprit to be a factor.
