We are now rehearsing in the auditorium of Berks Catholic High School. Chairs are located on rolling racks in the hall to the left of the stage. Chairs must be returned to this location (stacked on the racks) after rehearsal. Orchestra members must bring their own music stands.
Musicians and parents are asked to help set the chairs for the orchestra at 6:45 p.m. and break down at 9:15 p.m. Many hands make the task pass quickly. The RSYO Orchestra Map Setup link below provides a detailed diagram of the orchestra setup for use in setting the stage for rehearsal. All orchestra members should print a copy of this map and keep it with their music.
Parents are no longer responsible for supplying snacks and drinks. Musicians have the option of bringing their own snacks and beverages if they wish. Food items and beverages are not allowed in the auditorium proper.
In the event that we rehearse at a different venue, please make careful note of the room setup before you begin arranging chairs and stands for the rehearsal as the room must be returned to its original condition at the end of rehearsal. It is best to draw a map of the room before setup begins.
