REHEARSALS

Weekly Sunday rehearsals from 9:30 - 11:30 AM are held inside the Multipurpose Room at Almond Elementary School, 550 Almond Avenue, Los Altos 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 Symphony to help set the rehearsal room each week. Please refer to the message board throughout the season for specific details, should the rehearsal location change.


What to bring to rehearsals & workshops:

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