REHEARSALS

Weekly Sunday rehearsals are held inside the Multi-purpose Room at Santa Rita Elementary School, 700 Los Altos Ave., Los Altos, CA 94022, unless otherwise indicated. Please arrive 15 minutes early to get your instrument out and tuned. We also need the help of several parents in Wind Ensemble to help clean up the rehearsal room each week. Please refer to the message board throughout the season for specific details, should the rehearsal location change.

WORKSHOPS

We will hold two (2) required workshops that will provide training in ensemble performance and practice. Times and locations are the same. The workshops consist of sectionals directed by professional musicians.


What to bring to rehearsals & workshops:

  1. Your music. CYS will charge $25 to replace lost music.
  2. A music stand
  3. A pencil (always have this ready)
  4. Mutes, tuners, extra reeds, etc.
  5. Yellow ID barcode card

REHEARSAL HALL friendly reminders:

  • Please put your instrument cases to the sides of the room and neatly out of the walkways and not next to your chairs (even if you sit at the very back of the section). Take only what you need to your seat. 
  • 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.
