Members are expected to bring their own stands to both rehearsals and performances. Rehearsals are from 7:00 to 9:30 p.m. with a tea break at 8:15. Members should arrive in time to set up before the rehearsal begins.

The band is trying to do its bit by reducing landfill waste. Instead of using styrofoam cups, we encourage members to bring their own mugs each week if they plan to indulge in a cup of coffee or tea (provided at the low cost of $0.50 for beverage and weekly sweet treat).

Setup and Take-down

Members are expected to assist with setting up and putting away chairs and the conductor's podium and helping with the percussion equipment.
