Sheet Music
You are responsible for bringing your own music to rehearsal every week. Please do not take other member’s music when we hand out new rep! Leave it behind or give it back to the librarian if you know the person is away. If you lose your music, you can replace your own parts from the Dropbox links we send out at the beginning of each concert cycle or look them up in Team App. If you need us to replace it for you, we will charge $1 per part. If you have any questions you can email the librarian.

Rehearsals will start promptly at 7:30 PM, which means you need to arrive by 7:15 PM at the latest​ to assemble your instrument and warm up. If you are running late, please contact the Membership Coordinator. We may extend rehearsals by up to half an hour when needed, but we will provide notice at least a week in advance.

Rehearsals are scheduled every Thursday. Please check your school/work/ensemble schedules for the upcoming term and email as soon as possible if you’ll be absent for any rehearsals or concerts, so that we can plan accordingly. If conflicts arise in the future, please inform us as soon as they come up. We understand that last-minute absences are sometimes beyond your control, but please reserve last-minute notifications for these situations. In all other cases, you should be able to provide at least one week’s notice of absence, if not more. Excessive last-minute notifications may result in non-participation in performances or other penalties.
