Members must bring their own music stands to rehearsals and performances. This season, rehearsals will be from 7:00 to 9:15 p.m. with a 15-minute intermission. Members should arrive in sufficient time to set up before the rehearsal begins.

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.
