Rehearsal Information

In order to keep us all safe the Orchestra’s Advisory Board has determined that:

  • New members must present proof of vaccination and booster before participating. Please present a card, photo of a card or - least desirable - a QR code

  • Everyone must wear a mask while indoors - string players at all times, winds when not actively playing

  • We will take a break part way through rehearsal and will provide coffee and hot water for tea/hot chocolate


The Advisory Committee will continue to monitor health information and modify protocols as indicated.
