Consistent attendance at rehearsals is crucial to the success and musical growth of YOSA. Any absence from an ensemble affects the ability of other musicians of the orchestra to be fully prepared for the concert performance.
Dress rehearsals and concerts are mandatory. Any musician who misses a dress rehearsal may not be allowed to play in that concert, at the discretion of the conductor. Missing a concert is grounds for dismissal. Please refer to the 2019/20 YOSA Musician Handbook
for more information on YOSA's rehearsal attendance policy.
It is the responsibility of the musician and parents to ensure that the YOSA staff is informed about absences as early as possible.
