Aw shucks, every performance is a show that requires rehearsal. If there is a vocalist, the object of the instrumentalists is to showcase them ... or to send them packing at rehearsal, and vice versa. Such varies, if a soprano I may harmonize on the alto part, if a tenor lead, I may harmonize with bass on my euphonium. Years and years ago, there was an alto who sang Schubert's Ave Maria beautifully, and I played a soft descant throughout. If at the actual performance the lead vocalist is a horror, the audience attributes the same negativity to the instrumentalists and/or other vocalists backing them. The big bands did pretty well with their vocalists.
