Attendance Policy for playing a Concert

As we continue grow

in quality of performance

and quantity of members 

it is imperative to have full attendance at rehearsals.

We all know that there are very good reasons why people are not able to attend every rehearsal

and those reasons are respected; however, the following guidelines have been established to insure the highest level of performance that we 

can possibly achieve.
