Attendance Policy

Musicians are expected to be present at and on time for all rehearsals and concerts and to remain for their entire duration. Attendance is always taken. Regular attendance is essential for worthwhile rehearsals and quality performances. Attendance at dress rehearsals and concerts is mandatory.

Two excused absences are allowed per semester (September–December and January–May). Please contact MYO by leaving a message on the MYO phone or calling the conductor if you are ill or unable to attend a rehearsal.

Please leave your name, date and the reason for missing the rehearsal. If you are absent more than twice in a semester, your membership may be reviewed by the conductor and the MYO Board of Directors. More than two absences per semester may be reason for exclusion from the next concert or for dismissal from the orchestra. Tuition for uncompleted sessions is not refundable.
