A  Note About Rehearsal End Times

We wanted to share some important information about our rehearsal end times and pick-ups.

Sinfonia: 6:00 PM
Bridge: 6:45 PM
Youth Symphony: 6:45 PM
The fluctuation in end times between 7pm and 6:45pm for Youth Symphony have been due to finding the optimal time for ending rehearsals and cleaning up before campus security clears the building for the evening. Rehearsals will end at 6:45pm and we will continue to ask musicians to help us clean up stands, chairs and instruments. Some musicians are quicker than others and will take 5 minutes, while some have more instrumentation to store and will take longer. We have really appreciated the musician's help in getting the rooms picked up. THANK YOU!

Musicians have been allowed to leave the rehearsal rooms and areas as soon as they are done. Some parents have arranged to wait for their children at the entrance of the building, while others have waited curbside. We want each family to make the arrangement that is best for them. 

This said, all musicians are able to wait inside the lobby/entrance area until their parent/guardian picks them up or arrives on campus if it feels more secure than curbside. I (Silvia) am the last out of the building after clearing all of the rehearsal areas. I will wait curbside with any musician that is still in the lobby or curbside when I exit at 7pm. Please rest assured that I will never leave the campus while a musician is still waiting for their parent/guardian. In addition, campus security is typically stationed near the building until 7:30pm. 

This said, we appreciate parents/guardians arriving by 7pm to ensure their musician does not worry about being the last one. Should an emergency arise, please contact me as soon as possible at (707) 320-7225 so that I can assure your musician that you are on the way.

NVYS is a family. I encourage all our musicians and parents to look out for one another during rehearsals, breaks and at pick-up. Let's make sure to talk and include anyone that is alone. If you are waiting curbside look out for one another - if you see something fishy LET ME KNOW RIGHT AWAY. I want you to ALWAYS feel safe in talking to me about anything that comes up. You may see me running around but I can always take a moment to talk.

Can't wait to see you at rehearsal this afternoon!

Next Meeting December 11 @ 2:30 pm!
