First Rehearsal Information

Dear Junior Orchestra Families and Students,

Welcome to the start of AYSP's 62nd season of music! We are excited to see you tomorrow and wanted to share some information with you before you arrive.


Junior Orchestra (JO) rehearsals are located in Robertson Hall on the north-central section of the AYSP facility and begin promptly at 9:00 AM. Plan to arrive no later than 8:45 AM. JO rehearsals end at 12:00 AM. Your child will have a 15 minute break in the middle of rehearsal, so please send along a snack and some water to carry them through. We also have a vending machine if you would rather send them with $1.


Due to the small size of our parking lot, please arrive early and be patient with others upon your arrival. Safety is our number one concern. We ask that in order to have a successful drop off lane, that you enter our parking lot from the east entrance off Adams. Please DO NOT enter our lot from Menaul. If you plan to park and come in, please park either in our parking lot, on the west side of our building, or at GDR Automotive which is to the West of our building. Street parking on Adams and Washington is also an option, however, please do not block the driveways of our neighbors.


On Saturday, August 27, 8:45-9:00 AM, we will be having a brief parent meeting in the AYSP Bullpen (open area by AYSP offices). Please plan on having one parent attend to hear information from your conductors and staff about our upcoming season.


To keep our students safe, volunteers are needed to help with parking at the beginning and end of each rehearsal. If you can volunteer either 30 minutes before rehearsal starts or 30 minutes before rehearsal ends, please see Sayra Siverson or email

If you have any questions or concerns, please email or call Cynthia at 875-1319 or
