I think these are used interchangeably but "rehearsal" for me is when you're preparing for something that will be presented to an audience. What do you think?

Great explanation, Zelkiiro. Thank you for your answer.
Ah, thank you for this answer, TheCranberryBarn. Now I understand why the choir director uses "practice" because her goal as a musician is to get it as close to perfect as possible. The "rehearsal" definition very helpful.
You're welcome. I'm a retired Band Director, so it was interesting to read the confusion in your question. Sometimes we use the terms interchangeably!
Yes, I like your use of "continuous" and "routine" to describe practice. Thanks for answering, Rafiq23.
I like the use of "pre-performance" or "dry-run" to make the distinction. Thank you, Mark, for your answer.
