Regular rehearsals (excluding fall 2020 rehearsals) are Thursdays, 6:45 – 8:30 pm at Reedy Creek Middle School, Cary.

Location of fall 2020 rehearsals TBA.  Currently, we are looking at many options for each group’s fall rehearsals such as dividing up into smaller ensembles, rehearsing outdoors and socially-distanced, and offering a consistent virtual option for those concerned about in-person rehearsals. In-person rehearsals will not be mandatory in the fall.

Musicians must make a serious commitment to attending the weekly rehearsals detailed in the calendar. Everyone is expected to be ready to play at the beginning of a scheduled rehearsal and at the call time before a performance.

Important Dates
No one will be excused from a dress rehearsal or concert unless it is for severe illness or death in the family.

New Member Auditions (or returning second violins who want to play in the firsts) Directors will be in touch with members to schedule a virtual meeting and decide seating before the first rehearsal
First Fall Rehearsal: 9/17/20, location TBA
