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 e-mail your conductor/s to discuss the situation ASAP.
Dress Rehearsal – Saturday, April 27th, 12:50pm – 1:30pm (required)
Report Time: 12:20pm
End Time: 1:30pm
Location: Students should enter Popejoy Hall (very quietly – as YO will be on stage finishing their rehearsal) through the loading dock.
Everyone goes down the stairs to the right, then back up the stairs on the other side to unpack instruments in the Upstairs Green Room on the east side of the stage. Please keep floors clear with cases in dressing rooms on counters and against the walls, and wait to tune with your conductor.
At 1:45pm, your parent managers will take you out to the stage.
After rehearsal, you will go back to the Green Room to retrieve your cases and exit the hall by taking the East Stairs back down and up again on the West Stairs to the Loading Dock.
Parents are welcome to sit in the auditorium and listen to the dress rehearsal.
Attire: Casual. We encourage students to wear any AYSP shirt.
Ticket Vouchers: AYSP student ticket vouchers will be handed out during dress rehearsal.
