Why is it important to rehearse? I need the answer for a grade in music.

Let me answer you this way. How many times have you heard of a rock group going out on stage at a concert and doing a song they have never done before perfectly? It doesn't happen. Now you may answer your own question.

I agree with Maintube.

Another thought, a chorus is a group made up of many sections. Sopranos, altos, tenors, basses etc. all must be able to sing their parts and come together as one unit and that takes rehearsals.

If they performed "cold" no rehearsals, a good chorus might sing together most of the time and at times be off a little and you as a member of the audience would wonder what happened. Why did that sound funny.

All performers rehearse, (practice), so that they will be free to give a good performance.

Hope this helps.
