When will the full schedule be available?
By August 1, although the concert dates are posted here and first rehearsal dates and times were sent in the acceptance email.
Are we having rehearsal on (specific) Sunday?
Yes, we probably are. In the Fall we do not rehearse the Sunday after Thanksgiving. We take a winter break and in the Spring we don’t rehearse on Easter Sunday.
Do we have a rehearsal on Spring Break?
Yes. Between all the school districts our students encompass “Spring Break” is three weekends in a row. Any Sunday we took off would be the wrong one.
Why is the concert on (specfic) date?
Concerts are scheduled based on getting enough rehearsals so everyone is prepared and the availability of the place to have the concert.
Will this concert date be changed?
No. Concert scheduling starts 12-14 months in advance. Once we have a date locked in, it is set in stone.
What about (other schedule related question)?
99% of decisions made for the schedule are based on when spaces are available. Be that rehearsal times, sectionals, seating auditions, concerts, etc. We don’t own our rehearsal or concert venues so we cannot dictate when they are available.
