Please review the following information carefully – it contains important details about the dress rehearsal and concert. Concerts and dress rehearsals are REQUIRED activities for participation in the AYSP. If for any reason you/your student may be absent, you must speak with your conductors to discuss the situation ASAP.
Dress Rehearsal – Saturday, April 28th, 5:15pm – 6:00pm (required)
Report Time: 4:30pm
End Time: 6:00pm
Location: Students should enter Popejoy Hall (very quietly – as JO will be on stage finishing their rehearsal) through the loading dock.
Go down the stairs to the right, to unpack instruments below stage on the West Side. Please keep a clear walkway with cases against walls, and wait quietly with your conductors.
At 4:45pm, you will use the downstairs Green Room to warm up and tune with your conductors.

Concert – Sunday, April 29th, 3:00pm (required)

Location: Students should enter Popejoy Hall (very quietly – as JO may still be on stage finishing their concert) through the loading dock.
Go down the stairs to the right to drop off instruments below stage on the West Side. Keep a clear walkway with cases against walls, and wait quietly with your conductors.
At 2:45pm, your parent managers/conductors will lead you up the West Stairs to the hall to sit in the audience with your conductor and listen to the JB perform.
You will leave the audience to retrieve your instruments when you are instructed to do so just before their last piece. Listen to your parent managers/conductors carefully and move quietly during the performance.
