Concert times indicate the start of the performance. Arrival time for musicians will be announced by the conductor at dress rehearsal.

Each member is required to check with his/her school music department for schedule conflicts. All school and personal rehearsal conflicts are to be reported on the YJSO Rehearsal Conflict Form. This form must be signed and handed in even if no conflicts exist. If no conflicts are reported, the YJSO Board and the Conductor understand that no conflicts exist.

All Parent Meetings are mandatory, one or both parents should attend.

Virtually all communication is done via email. Be sure to add board@yjso.org to your address book. Also check the home page of this web site for news, cancellations and more.
Please note, while we do our best to adhere to the printed rehearsal schedule, this schedule is tentative and subject to change.
