In order to make planning for rehearsals as easy as possible, we publish our schedules well in advance. The calendar that is available at all times on our website should be regarded as THE LAW when it comes to any band event. Although our organization is large, each individual’s attendance is important at every single rehearsal and performance. It is hard to get better as a band when we are dealing with missing individuals in the group. When one, or a set of individuals miss rehearsal time, the full organization must take the time to go back and make sure the absentees are filled in on all the information they missed. Unexcused absences from rehearsal will result in the loss of performance opportunities and could ultimately result in the student being removed from the program.
