REHEARSALS

Sunday rehearsals are held from 12:00 - 2:00 PM (be ready to tune at 11:55) at Almond Elementary School, 550 Almond Avenue, Los Altos, CA 94022, unless otherwise indicated. Please refer to the newsletters provided throughout the season for further details.

WORKSHOPS

We will hold six (6) required workshops that will provide advanced training in orchestral performance and practice. Please note the different times and locations. The workshops consist of sectionals and musicianship directed by professional coaches. Full orchestra resumes from 12:00 - 2:00 PM. 

What to bring to rehearsals & workshops:

  1. Your music. CYS will charge $25 to replace lost music.
  2. Music stand (important)
  3. A pencil (always have this ready)
  4. Extra reeds, strings, mutes, tuners, slide/valve oil, etc.
  5. Yellow ID barcode card

REHEARSAL HALL friendly reminders:

  • Please put your instrument cases to the sides of the room or on stage, neatly out of the walkway and not next to your chairs (even if you sit at the very back of the section). This also applies to winds & brass, take only what you need to your chair. 
  • Please clean-up after yourselves.
  • Let's help keep our rehearsal room clean by picking up little items off the floor (i.e. napkins, pencils, water bottles, etc), even if the item does not belong to you.
  • Eat your snacks, sip your drinks outside the rehearsal room and, please, do not make a mess outside.
